Two randy pandas have set a new record for the length of time they made love.
Pandas are not known for the longevity in the sack – the average time of panda sex is just 80 seconds. But a breeding pair at China’s Giant Panda Research and Protection Center, smashed that record with their love making lasting : 7 minutes and 45 seconds. The sex record was announced by the Chinese state newspaper The People’s Daily. Lu Lu, the male panda, now goes by the nickname “Enduring Brother”.
This year, researchers will hope to naturally mate 27 female pandas.
