National Zoo completes 2 artificial inseminations of panda

WASHINGTON (AP) - Scientists at the National Zoo have artificially inseminated female giant panda Mei Xiang in an attempt to breed her with a panda in China.

The zoo said Monday that a team of reproductive scientists performed two artificial inseminations. The first one was completed Sunday, and the second procedure was done Monday morning.

For the first time, scientists used semen from a panda living in China named Hui Hui. Experts determined they would be a strong genetic match. Hui Hui has not sired any cubs.

Sounds like they need to hook up Mei Xiang panda with Mei Se Xi panda, if they want results.
