Tian Tian, the UK’s only giant panda, will not be giving birth this year. Edinburgh Zoo has announced the sad news of the bear’s inability to produce cubs. There have been six failed attempts since she arrived at the zoo.
The panda’s hormone levels and behavior were abnormal, but have improved for the end of the breeding cycle.
It was announced last month that the zoo thought Tian Tian was pregnant. Now that it was revealed they were mistaken, people are freaking out on Twitter.
WHY DO PANDAS WANT THERE NEVER TO BE MORE PANDAS? https://t.co/Gobfe61rlo

I see the panda everyone thought was pregnant again has actually turned out to not be pregnant again.
