Two Chinese pandas,Tian Tian and Yang Guang, are receiving hundreds of visitors every day in Edinburgh Zoo in the UK.

A team of 14 guides were hired and spent one month training in order to provide a running commentary on the two pandas' every move.

The gift shop in Edinburgh Zoo also stocked up on a huge variety of panda-themed souvenirs, including Apple iPod docking stations, iPhone cases, bibs, key rings, suitcases, backpacks, notebooks, mugs and car stickers.

According to the zoo, a total of 10,000 tickets have already been reserved through the end of January to see the pandas.
