A zoo's pandas finally mated after 10 years — all thanks to some 'privacy'

Ying Ying and Le Le have lived together for 13 years, but when it came to having kids, it just never felt like the right time.

The two giant pandas, who have lived at Hong Kong’s Ocean Park since 2007, have had what can be described as a slow, patient courtship.

The zoo first began trying to mate Ying Ying and Le Le in 2010, when they were four years old.

It’s not clear why the couple chose now to finally mate, but they have had plenty of time alone lately.

Due to the current global health crisis, Ocean Park shut its doors and has remained closed to the public .

This doesn’t necessarily mean Ying Ying and Le Le have a cub on the way as word on that will take a few weeks, according to the zoo
