        The Challenges of Breeding Pandas in Captivity

        Zookeepers at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington D.C. were overjoyed when a female giant panda gave birth to her second cub. But a week later, the cub died unexpectedly. PBS NewsHour spoke with Pierre Comizzoli, a reproductive physiologist with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and Mei Xiang's "personal gynecologist," about the challenges of breeding pandas in captivity. This video and teacher's guide are from PBS NewsHour Extra.
