Giant panda Tian Tian is believed to be pregnant and may give birth by the end of the month.

Keepers at Edinburgh Zoo have been monitoring Tian Tian since she was artifically inseminated on April 13.

Iain Valentine, director of pandas at the zoo, said: “The latest scientific data suggests Tian Tian the giant panda is now pregnant and that implantation has taken place; therefore, she may give birth at the end of the month.

“This is all very new and complex science and we still have a bit of time to go yet, as like last year, the late loss of a cub remains entirely possible.”
