'Denver Zoo is celebrating the birth of an endangered Malayan Tapir calf! The male calf, named Baku (Bah-koo), was born on April 29. Fortunately, his delivery was much easier than that of his older brother, who was saved by mouth-to-snout rescue breathing by keepers back in 2012.
A Miniature Pig named Jolly became a first time mother on August 14, at Zoo Basel. Jolly gave birth to eight wiggly Piglets: four males and four females. Despite her lack of experience, Jolly’s instincts have been spot-on, and she is a very attentive mother. 1
