Dating Software to Help Endangered Pandas Find Mate
BEIJING (Reuters) - International panda experts have designed computer software to help the charismatic and endangered bears find their ideal mates, a newspaper reported on Monday.
The software, developed by experts at a meeting in China, would analyze the health and bloodlines of each panda in captivity to find the best match while avoiding close relatives, the Star Daily said.
... In April, middle-aged panda Ling Ling was sent home to Japan from a Mexico City zoo where he failed to romance three female pandas. Zookeepers said Ling Ling, on his second "Mission Impossible" in Mexico, was not interested in his potential mates.
