Edinburgh Zoo: One possible last attempt tomorrow to get pandas to mate

The pandas met again twice this evening and on their first meeting came closer than ever before to mating. If Tian Tian’s hormones are still partially elevated, we may put Tian Tian and Yang Guang together for one last time early tomorrow morning.

Hopes for panda mating fades

Edinburgh Zoo has warned that the chances of Britain's only pandas successfully mating this year "have decreased." Yang Guang and Tian Tian may be given one last opportunity tomorrow morning. Female pandas only ovulate once a year.
