It’s always a celebration in zoos when an animal is born. Recently, in the Marwell Zoo a Przewalski’s horse, also known as Mongolian wild horse was born. The species is included in the critically endangered animals red list.
The zoo is excited about the newborn horse. They have given special attention to the mom during the pregnancy period. In the end, the female horse gave birth to a healthy foal.
The baby was born at night, so the zoo administration hasn’t yet known the sex of the foal.
This zoo specifically follows the breeding of the Przewalski’s horses. We are glad that they succeeded.
These horses come from Central Asia. They are typical of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. Only after 11 or 12 months of carrying the foal, the females give birth.
These species are small in size, have a big head and a thick neck. Their legs are short. These horses are adapted to desert places.
Agree, that the short horses are very cute and lovely!
This Baby Zebra Has Spots Instead Of Stripes
Most of us love to see zebras whenever we visit the zoo. They are so adorable with beautiful black and white stripes and it is not possible to stop loving them. However, the little zebra baby that we are going to show you now will not only win your heart but also will be your favorite animal for sure.
This rare polka dot baby was born in Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Unlike all the other zebras in his family, he was not born with black and white stripes but with white spots over his body. A wildlife specialist from Matira Bush Camp, Parmalee Lemelin told that this was the first time such a polka dot zebra was born in that park. They suppose that baby zebra has melanism which is the opposite of albinism. However, the sad thing is that baby zebras with such conditions have not survived in history for more than six months.
Some scientists claim that zebra stripes form as a result of inhibition in melanin production. That means zebras are originally black and white stripes are a result of this inhibition. However, these stripes help zebras to stay cool in the heat of the environment. Some also believe that stripes help them to stay safe from predators. However, there is no doubt that zebras are one of the most adorable animals and this little gentleman looks unique and charming among others.
So, here we have some more cute pictures of the baby zebra that you would like to have look.
