Chiang Mai Zoo on baby panda 'alert'

Chiang Mai Zoo Monday put giant panda Lin Hui on two days of close surveillance as she is expected to give birth to a new cub this week.

Head veterinarian Boripat Siriaroonrat told a press conference that Lin Hui's appetite remained normal on Sunday but there were signs to show she was about to give birth, such as lactating breasts and a drop in hormone progesterone (to 192 nanograms per creatinine).
