1st-ever footage of giant pandas mating in the wild is not ‘cute and cuddly’

A pair of aggressive male giant pandas roar ferociously on the ground beneath a female perched in a tree, in the first-ever footage of panda courtship and mating in the wild. 

For nearly three years, nature filmmakers Yuanqi Wu and Jacky Poon followed pandas in China’s Qinling Mountains, hoping to capture evidence of elusive behavior that was unseen in captive animals, which are mated under controlled conditions that do not include competitions between males.
