A zookeeper at Edinburgh Zoo, where it is hoped that Tian Tian the giant panda may be preparing to give birth, has said that so far she is "sticking to her normal routine".
Sharon Hatton said that Tian Tian is "doing very well" but that the zookeepers are "not seeing any changes" to suggest that a birth is imminent.
Tian Tian is looking rather relaxed this morning, despite news that she may be about to give birth to the UK's first giant panda baby.
Tian Tian (meaning Sweetie) and Yang Guang (Sunshine) arrive in Scotland from Ya'an reserve in Chengdu, China.
The pair are introduced at Edinburgh Zoo and shown to a specially made "love tunnel", but they only go as far as wrestling.
The zoo launches a “panda-cam” so people across the world can watch the two giant pandas in the run-up to mating season.
After failing to show signs that she is ready to mate, Tian Tian is artificially inseminated.
The zoo's plans to carry out an ultrasound to see if Tian Tian is pregnant are shelved because it is deemed too risky to sedate her.
The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland reveals that hormone changes indicate Tian Tian may be pregnant.
