According to the staff of the research base, they showed Ke Lin this video trying to let her know how to mate as she kept rejecting her mate panda Yong Yong from mounting her although she was in oestrum. After watching this video, Ke Lin and Yong Yong successfully mated.

This little echidna is lucky to be alive after being found wandering down the middle of the street in Victoria, Australia. Megan Wilson first spotted the spiky creature and scooped him up and took him to the Healesville Animal Sanctuary.

Red Panda Enjoys Day Off From School
What’s better than a snow day? A snow day spent with Larry, a red panda from Meadowbrook Heights, KS.
The red panda found out just how much he loves the white stuff when a recent snowstorm led to school being canceled.
“He was skeptical at first,” said Marie Olson, a source close to the situation. “He was really looking forward to a documentary on slugs that they were screening in his earth science class. But once he actually got out and starting playing in the snow, he couldn’t get enough of it.”
