My post for today is about the website ZOOBORN.  I love this site, every day there is a post about baby animals just born to an accredited zoo somewhere in the world. What better way to end the 2013 April A to Z than with baby animals?

First up: "Seneca Park Zoo has welcomed two African Lion cubs born on March 7. The pair, a male and a female, were born to first time parents Asha and Chester. Soon after their birth, in consultation with the Lion Species Survival Plan (SSP) Program, the Seneca Park Zoo’s animal care staff began hand-raising them. This decision became necessary when the mother stopped nursing and caring for her babies. After two months of care by zoo staff, the cubs will re-join their parents."

"Kenyi, a British Columbian Tundra Wolf pup, has a new home after traveling across the country to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center.  Born in Florida, Kenyi and his two siblings were unplanned, so there was not enough room for them to remain at their birthplace."

"Sometimes zoo babies are a surprise, and that’s exactly what happened when Molly, a North American Porcupine, surprised keepers at the Woodland Park Zoo by delivering a male porcupette (the actual name for a baby Porcupine) on April 18."

This is just a handful of sweet babies for this week alone. Here we have the end of April A to Z and I am happy and exhausted by the exercise. I am going to take a short break while I go to a Blue Grass festival in Clinton, MO. See you next week.


  1. I'll have to go and visit that website. Those animals are adorable. Have a great time at the festival and well done for completing!
