Celebrations are underway at Edinburgh Zoo to mark a very special birthday for one of its most famous inhabitants.
One of only two giant pandas in the UK, Yang Guang is turning nine today and will be tucking into a special cake and bamboo themed presents for what is his first birthday in the Scottish attraction.
Also known as Sunshine, the cute creature`s special day comes only 10 days before the zoo`s other panda Tian Tian – or Sweetie – who also turns nine on 24 August.
The first giant pandas to live in the UK for 17 years, Sunshine and Sweetie will be living at Edinburgh Zoo for the next 10 years.
Just two of many fantastic animals and species on show at the popular tourist attraction, be sure to drop by and wish the two a happy birthday whilst enjoying a break in one of the fine Edinburgh hotels
over the coming months.
