Prague Zoo: a new addition and a tree after Christmas feast

Prague Zoo: a new addition and a tree after Christmas feast Despite the freezing weather arrives in Prague Zoo new life. Guanaco llamas cub was born on Friday, January 6 in the paddock and visitors saw his coming into the world.

The mother who gave birth to his child in the paddock on Friday, became a six-year female. Father is a new three-year male Nestor, who comes from Tierpark Berlin and breeding has been involved for the first time. It was found that the baby is a male and his mother takes good care of him.

Guanaco are wild species of llamas, which used to be common in nature, but lately their numbers continue to decline. They live on dry mountain pampas of South America. They have thick and fine hair that is well protected from the cold. In his homeland inhabit an altitude of 5000 meters, and the low temperatures they do not make any problems. Breeders, however, a mother with a baby instead, at least for the first few days separated in a heated barn.

In severe frost the animals enjoyed it on the branches of spruce Christmas from Old Town Square

Last week also began in the Prague zoo feeding the branches of a Christmas tree on Old Town Square. Some species of animals were given a huge spruce branches in the enclosure, some in the warmth of their pavilions. Neither severe frost did not prevent so on branches and even smaller stromcích of unsold inventory after Christmas should be savored buffalo or bison.

The greatest joy again prevailed in the elephant house, where elephants bask literally dragging. Baby elephants, unlike their mothers trees still obviously do not eat, but consider them to be great fun. The supply of Christmas trees can withstand zoo still at least two weeks, so visitors can look forward to an interesting spectacle.
