Zoo sex films for pandas.
Zoo bosses in China are resorting to the panda porn to try to boost the number of babies.
They have turned down offers from the pharmaceutical industry of Viagra and other sex drugs in favour of the film frolics. They claim they have had a 40 per cent success rate so far.
Now Berlin zoologist Dr Ragnar Kuehne said the idea of using videos of mating bears may be considered in the German capital's zoo.
Yan Yan, a female panda on loan to Berlin from China to mate with Bao Bao, the resident male, has not shown any interest in her would-be mate since she arrived five years ago.
