Not only people are bored during the lockdown. Two Pandas have been trying to mate for 10 years and only after the zoo has been quarantined, they finaly did it
In Hong Kong's Ocean Park, the 14-year-old pandas Yin Yin and Le Le mated. This is the first success in 10 years, according to the zoo website.
"The successful natural mating process today is extremely exciting for all of us, as the chance of pregnancy via natural mating is higher than by artificial insemination," Michael Boos, executive director for zoological operations and conservation at Ocean Park.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the park has been closed to visitors since late January.
From the end of March, Yin Yin began to spend more time playing in the water, while Le Le left traces of smells around his habitat and everywhere looked for her smell. This behavior is consistent with the usual behavior during the breeding season, which occurs once a year from March to May. With a change in hormone levels at Yin Yin, the Park’s veterinary team that looked after the animals confirms that giant pandas have entered the breeding season this year, the report said.
The giant male and female pandas reach puberty from seven and five years old, respectively. Yin Yin and Le Le arrived in Hong Kong in 2007 and since 2010 they tried to mate, but they did not succeed, since it is difficult for pandas to breed in captivity. By the way, the probability of pregnancy with natural mating is higher than with artificial insemination.
If successful, signs of pregnancy, including hormonal fluctuations in the level and behavioral changes, can be observed already at the end of June, although there is always the possibility that Yin Yin may experience pseudo-pregnancy. “We hope this year to bring great news about pregnancy to Hong Kong and make an additional contribution to the conservation of this vulnerable species,” said Michael Boos, Executive Director of Zoological Operations and Conservation at Ocean Park.
The gestation period for giant pandas ranges from 72 to 324 days. Pregnancy can only be confirmed 14-17 days before birth using ultrasound scanning.
Meanwhile, a camel Sema was born in the Kharkov zoo. Now Semyon Aleksandrovich is already 10 days old, he was born with a weight of 38 kilograms and 90 centimeters. The camel Alexandrovich continues to grow as it is breast-fed. He will drink his mother’s milk for at least another six months, or even a half, after which he will switch to the usual camel meal: hay, grass, carrots, beets and bran.

Who says only people get bored in the quarantine imposed by the restrictions on the spread of COVID-19?
Almost all of the world was quarantined because of Covid 19, and we humans were forced, in the new circumstances, to be isolated between four walls, our pets were facing an unprecedented challenge. Suddenly, our cats and dogs found themselves having to endure us, their two-legged roommates, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And somehow adapt to these strange and unique circumstances for them.
The mourners empathize with their owners and suffer from the "hysterical euphoria of isolation", a behavioral phenomenon that makes them put their heads where their pot doesn't boil and try the crazy things they haven't done before.
This is how social networks are filled with canine guides. A desperate owner in Manchester pinned his dog between the cushions of the couch, and another with difficulty freed him from the hammock in which he had landed and dozens of Britons had to find ingenious solutions after the pet locked his head or bottle in glasses, bottles, mailboxes or chair backs.
When staying in quarantine, people start creating funny things. Some people invent funny games, other creative occupations. While spending the whole day at home, let’s see how others are spending their time, maybe we find something good for us.
A person in lockdown starts seeing his house as a big and luxurious castle, or a battlefield, even that floor is lava. Jimmy Fallon was wandering where the human creation can get, and started a challenge with the hashtag #ImSoBored.
The comedian asked people to tell him funny things they have done to pass the time in quarantine. Yes, boredom is the path to creationism, new ideas and funny actions.
James Thomas Fallon is an American comedian, actor, television host, writer, and producer. He is known for his work in television as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and as the host of late-night talk show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and before that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The Tonight Show is the third longest running show on NBC,and due to coronavirus it got a quarantine rendition. Since Fallon’s show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and other late-night shows that spread good mood and fun have suspended production due to the pandemic, the Fallon found a good solution. Jimmy created the "At Home Edition” episode which are coming out live from Fallon’s home.
