Self-Aware Panda Pretends it's Pregnant to Win Extra Treats

Giant panda Ai Hin is currently at the centre of a no-sex scandal, after zoo workers claimed she pretended to be pregnant to win extra treats. Staff at the Chengdu Breeding Research Centre in China were planning a live broadcast of the birth, although it's now thought the promise of "more buns" when appearing pregnant may be teaching some pandas to pretend they're up the duff.
