Giant Panda Ai Lin

A giant Panda in China faked her own pregnancy to gain extra care and improve her lifestyle.

“After showing prenatal signs, the ‘mothers-to-be’ are moved into single rooms with air conditioning and around-the-clock care,” Panda expert Wu Kongju told Xinhua. “They also receive more buns, fruits and bamboo, so some clever pandas have used this to their advantage to improve their quality of life.”

Ai Hin, age 6, of the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Center had shown signs of pregnancy, including a change in appetite, moving less and an increase in progestational hormone in July, according to Xinhua.
