Not so long Chapi, the mother baboon gave birth to the baby baboon along with the father baboon, Horus and the happiness didn’t last long for the baboons and the zookeepers as the little baby died, unfortunately. The zookeepers noticed the baby lying on the ground without movement and confirmed the death.
The mother baboon couldn’t let go of the baby and was cradling the baboon while the zoo handlers were not able to find the cause of death. Along with the parent baboons, the zoo people were grieving for the uncertain death of the creature.
Hamadryas Baboon is one of the five baboon species of Africa that lives in hard and dry regions of the nation. Last time it was a hippopotamus, an African lioness and a sloth which died and left the zookeepers in a depressed state.ads
The Chief Executive of the zoo, Elaine Bensted said that there are over 2000 animals in the zoo under their care while the highs and lows always happen like death and the rise of the animals. The moment of this death, zookeepers are also preparing for breeding of giant pandas Fu Ni and Wang Wang that has a limited fertility process each year.
