Some Stars Are Born
Paris, France – A South American sea lion, a puma and a bush dog all had babies this summer at the Parc Zoologique (Zoological Park) of Paris, which is part of France’s National Museum of Natural History. For the first time in France a South American sea lion was born and Mother Nora and Baby Naya are doing well. And the baby, in typical pinniped fashion is already swimming on her own. Meanwhile on August 21st the puma Maeli gave birth to a baby in full view of the visitors who happened to be on hand during the happy event. The baby at press time had yet to be named. Mala, the bush dog gave birth to a litter of three babies as the night fell from July 22nd into July 23rd. One pup survived which is similar to the survival rate in the wild. The bush dogs are invovoled in a Europeancaptie breeding program for these elusive animals which are classified as near threatened in nature y the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. For those of you who can’t be in France right now, we present these exotic babies to you in a mini slideshow.
