Since their arrival in 2012, they are the stars of the ZooParc de Beauval ! Huan Huan, the female giant panda, and Yuan Zi, the male, are at the center of all attentions.
Coming from China, the giant pandas are considered like a true national treasure. Only 15 zoological parcs in world shelter these ursidae outside China.
In France, they are the only representatives of their species. Their reproduction and the birth of a baby panda is therefore a true challenge and a great hope for the endangered species throughout the world !
Wednesday July 26th, an embryo of panda was detected during an echography (see the video). We are looking forward the birth of this baby (read the article) panda scheduled for the beginning of the month of August!
Some giant screens inside Beauval will broadcast the first weeks of the baby by its mum, because it will stay in its night box, invisible from the visitors, during about 2 to 3 months, in a plain calm.
