Hopes for panda cub
The UK’s only female panda has been artificially inseminated in the latest attempt to produce a cub.
Tian Tian underwent the procedure at Edinburgh Zoo during her annual health check.
Keepers said it is too early to know if she is pregnant.
The zoo said: “We are pleased to say that all went well. We will all be keeping our fingers crossed.”
Artificially inseminating Tian Tian is said to be a “critical part of the giant panda international breeding programme”.
