The UK’s Chester Zoo has had a good year in terms of new additions. These animal specimens were not brought expressly to this center in northern England, but rather were born within the enclosure itself.
These were reported by the Spanish edition of CNN in a graphic report in which they review the success of the breeding program for the conservation of endangered species.
In this sense, they collect cases of unique species born in Chester Zoo from the middle of America, like the case of an endangered tree. Of course, we had to wait at least half a year to see him cut off his head from the marsupial bag.
Another of the curious births is ZeeZee the western chimpanzee, eight months after birth. The introduction to the world is important, since this variety is in danger of extinction in the countries of West Africa from Senegal to Ghana. Unfortunately, the species has become extinct in other African countries, such as Burkina Faso, Benin or Togo.
It is similar to Nessa, a small Malayan (Indian) tapir, a species native to South America, but which is endangered due to deforestation. Also extremely rare are the ten specimens of the Persona chameleon born last year or the two Sumatran tiger cubs – an Indonesian island – born last January. Fewer than 600 of these tigers remain in the wild.
There is also a new tenant in the rhinoceros family, specifically that of the horned rhinoceros or Indian rhinoceros (for it has no horn). It is a vulnerable species from India and Nepal.
