Two pandas in Vienna – level 1

04-10-2023 15:00

Once a year, pandas can mate. Panda females can get pregnant for only 2 or 3 days. This makes getting pregnant difficult.

Two pandas are in a zoo in Vienna, Austria. They mate a few times. This is special. The zoo films the pandas. They let people see the video. Pandas are pregnant for up to 163 days. The zoo must wait to see if the panda is pregnant.

Difficult words: mate (to make babies), female (a woman), pregnant (to start to have a baby inside).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

How long do pandas remain pregnant in general?
