Baby Animals: Hippos & Lemurs (2 videos)

  • 1 of 2

First up, you’ll see an adorable baby pygmy hippo. And next, on page 2, you’ll see some really cute lemur babies in Madagascar.

Kambiri, the Pygmy Hippo Baby

Heís just 6 weeks old, and is being raised at the Taronga Conservation Society in Australia. Those of you who donít believe animals should ever be in zoos, please watch this. So often the babies have no mother or the mother isnít very motherly.

Kambiriís mother Petre was only intermittently interested in letting the baby use her teat. The conservation staff fed supplemental food to Kambiri while encouraging her mother to do her duty. Result: a healthy, happy 6 week old hippo.

Next up, lemur babies in Madagascar.

It's very difficult to have a good posture, even though you're not slouching.

Very curious tips, i´ve never heard of them and i would never imagine that would work out

Thanks for sharing!!

A very US-centric article, as usual, but useful for those who live in high-risk areas.
