Photo: Panda "Porn" to Boost Mating Efforts at Thai Zoo



Male giant panda Chuang Chuang (left) plays with female Lin Hui in their compound at the Chiang Mai Zoo, about 435 miles (700 kilometers) north of Bangkok, Thailand, on February 18, 2004.

The animals, now prime for mating, have yet to produce offspring. So zoo officials are planning to show Chuang Chuang "panda porn" in an attempt to teach him the reproductive ropes.
