73. Memphis Zoo Help Develop Panda 'Pregnancy Test' -

The Memphis Zoo, one of four zoos in the U.S. to house giant pandas, has discovered a breakthrough that could make it easier for zoos worldwide to breed pandas.
Memphis Zoo researcher Dr. Erin Willis will be featured in a scientific publication this month for her research breakthrough on panda pregnancies, which have been difficult to detect in early stages due to a phenomenon known as “pseudo-pregnancy.”
Pseudo-pregnancies happen when female pandas display all the signs of pregnancy but are not pregnant.
“For decades, researchers all over the world have been searching for a ‘magic bullet’ that would provide a pregnancy test for giant pandas and other exotic wildlife that undergo pseudo-pregnancy,” Willis states in her article.
The research included samples from female pandas at the four U.S. zoos with giant pandas: the Memphis Zoo, National Zoo (Washington, D.C.), San Diego Zoo and Zoo Atlanta.
Dr. Andy Kouba, director of Conservation and Research for the Memphis Zoo, said that knowing an animal is definitely pregnant helps managers modify the animal’s dens and diets, remove them from other bears that might injure a newborn, prepare for the possibility of hand-raising the young, or even install cameras to monitor a cub.
“This newfound information can be critical to the success of a captive breeding program,” Kouba said. “The new assay developed by Dr. Willis and the Memphis Zoo will provide the necessary tools to manage pregnancies in giant pandas and has the potential to assist in managing many other bear and canine species.”
