Abstract:The resistance values of vaginal mucus of five giant pandas during estrous and mating period have been detected. The resistance values from 4 giant pandas displayed V- shaped curves and the bottom of the curve coincided with the period of peak value of urinary estrogen. Three giant pandas gave birth to cub in autumn that year. It has been suggested by the authors that the resistance value of vaginal mucus of giant panda could be used for ovulation prediction.
