Ya Ya was born in the Beijing Zoo, Beijing, China on August 3, 2000. She was born through artificial insemination.
Her mother is Le Le (born 9/18/1986) and father is Ying Ying (born 8/15/1991) both from the Beijing Zoo. She was weaned from her mother at an early age and then keeper raised.
Her face is more elongated with distinctive eye patches, where her fur does not cover right up to her eyes, leaving a ring of hairless dark skin surrounding them. She has large beautiful ears.
She is very open to eating different things, enjoying watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe and specially prepared fruitsicles by the keepers.
Ya Ya and her male partner have not been successful yet as far as mating naturally, but they are both very young still.
