Christmastime baby boom in the zoos of Hungary
This Christmas was quite exciting in the Budapest Zoo and the Nyíregyháza Zoo, which both welcomed baby animals. A baby gorilla was born in the former zoo, while the latter one welcomed twin jaguar babies. What a blessing 🙂
Regarding the gorillas, both the mother, N’Yaounda, and the baby are doing great. According to hvg.hu, the sex of the little gorilla remains a secret for now as the relationship between the mother and the baby is very close, they are attached to each other, and there’s no reason to separate them for now.
The father of the baby is Golo, the alpha male of the group.
The first gorilla born in the Budapest Zoo was in 1992, the last was born in 2010. The little gorilla is the fifth baby born in the zoo. Currently, six gorillas are kept in the Budapest Zoo, out of whom two are infants.
Zoltán Hanga, the spokesman of the zoo, said that the little gorilla can be already visited after Christmas.
The stork also flew by the Nyíregyháza Zoo, where twin jaguars were born: one of them has yellow fur, while the other is black. The cubs are already one month old, but they were only presented to the public at Christmas.
According to szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, the colleague of the zoo said that these animals are quite lonely, the nursing of the cubs is the task of the female, while the male is separated from them since he could be dangerous for the babies.
She added that the jaguar, the only big cat of the New World, comes in different colours: yellow, black spotty and black.
This is why it’s possible that the twins look different 🙂
