Chiang Mai Zoo could soon be in possession of another rare panda cub.
Panda Lin Hui is expected to deliver her second cub in the middle of June.
The panda, a gift from China, is said to be showing behavioural changes that suggest it is about to give birth. It is reported to be preparing its habitat for a cub.
Lin Hui was artificially inseminated with semen from Chuang Chuang. If all goes well, it will be a fantastic achievement for the zoo.
They successfully bred a panda cub in 2009 called Ling Ping, who now resides in China, where they are hoping to find a mate for it.
Panda’s are native to China and recognisable by the large distinctive black patches around its eyes and ears.
They are seen as cuddly creatures but are members of the bear family. They survive by eating mainly bamboo but do enjoy certain fruits, honey and eggs.
They are regarded as an endangered species, with zoos around the world doing their utmost to breed them to maintain species levels.
