The public were given the chance to see two giant pandas when they went on display for the first time since arriving from China.
Tian Tian and Yang Guang have been getting used to their new home in Edinburgh Zoo since they arrived on Sunday December 4.
The eight-year-olds spent the first few days recovering from the long flight and acclimatising to their enclosures.
But yesterday groups of people filed past the two enclosures where they took photographs and had a talk by a zoo guide. Zoo bosses said around 600 visitors have pre-booked to see the pandas – a 200 per cent increase on the usual gate numbers for a mid-December Friday.
