Caught on cam: Panda breeding base collects panda semen

Captive giant panda Tongtong “donated” his semen recently to a sperm bank. The veterinarians, at the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas in southwest China province of Sichuan, first gave the panda an anesthetic, before conducting an operation to extract the semen. The whole process was captured on camera. Experts say that semen collected artificially normally has a very high successes rate in breeding cubs. It was the second time the center has collected giant panda semen.
