Chiang Mai Zoo panda likely to give birth in next 3-4 days


BANGKOK, 13 October 2015 – Chiang Mai Zoo panda Lin Hui will likely give birth in the next 3-4 days, judging by changes in her behavior, said the research team. 

October 13 marks the 114th day after the giant panda from Sichuan underwent an artificial insemination. The research team has closely monitored Lin Hui after changes in behavior have been detected recently.

According to the Chiang Mai Zoo director, Niphon Wichairat, Lin Hui has in the past few days been surveying for herself a nesting ground, eating less food and sleeping for longer stretches. The team has, therefore, concluded that she should be giving birth in the next 3-4 days.
