Much-adored giant panda Lin Hui is expected to give birth, possibly in the next 72 hours, a senior government veterinarian said at 2pm yesterday.

According to her latest urine test and her behaviour, the expectant mother – now in Chiang Mai Zoo – shows several signs of being close to delivery.
Surveillance cameras follow Lin Hui’s movement around the clock, so as long as she is not in a blind spot, the birth will be caught on camera, said chief veterinarian Borriphat Siriarunrat.
