A chinese pandahan, that would have been to Denmark as a gesture from the chinese regime, must be at home.
the Male has been shown to have poor abilities to propagate.
Why are hanpandaen - on their recommendation - replaced by another male, who does not have problems with fertility.
- The he, we had originally been promised, has been shown to be affected by cryptorchidism - or, to put it more popular: His ability to procreate is probably not good.
- So the chinese have recommended us to get another he to Copenhagen, says scientific director Bengt Holst, the Zoo in Copenhagen.
With cryptorchidism is believed that both testes have not decreased down into the scrotum in the male.
Bengt Holst was before christmas in Shanghai to see the pandahan, as the chinese and instead will lend to Denmark.
He is an active bear, and he climbs a lot. It fits really well to the she, he must pair up with in Copenhagen, says Bengt Holst.
The new pandahan has the name 'Xing', and he must pair up with the female 'Mao Sun'. They are located both at the Chengdu Panda Base, where they are learning each other's smells and behavior to know.
Pandaparret is expected to Copenhagen in the course of the spring. A new pandaanlæg is being made ready to receive the pair.
It was queen Margrethe ii of denmark, who, during a state visit in 2014, agreed with the chinese, to Denmark to borrow two pandas.
In may 2017, the agreement was formally signed in China, in the presence of the Danish prime minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen (V).
China has since the 1950s used pandas as a diplomatic tool to link the western countries closer.See also: Bjarke Ingels must take out old plants in Denmark
