  • Baby Amur Leopard Cub, World's Rarest Big Cat, Born at Yalta Zoo

    Vets were hand-feeding the tiny Amur leopard baby at the Yalta Zoo, as the cub is still too young to open its eyes or even walk on four legs. Only 57 Amur leopards, which are listed as "Critically Endangered," are believed to live in the wild as of 2015. Despite the fact that Amur leopard numbers have roughly doubled since 2007, they are still the species of large felines most vulnerable to extinction.

  • Rare Newborn Blue-Eyed Black Lemur Raises Hopes to Save Species

    A rare female newborn blue-eyed black lemur, Ikopa, was moved to the La Palmyre Zoo nursery in Les Mathes, France to receive special care due to her fragility and low weight. Born on April 9, Ikopa continues to receive special care from her keepers, who feel her milk every two hours, as well as bits of fruits and vegetables. While Ikopa musters up enough strength to leave her incubators, her parents and older brother can maintain visual contact with her from their adjacent cage. Blue-eyed black lemurs, like all true lemurs can only be found on the African island nation of Madagascar and their numbers have drastically fallen. These primates are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as "critically endangered" because humans have cut down nearly all the forest areas which these animals call home to clear land for farming. It is believed that as few as 1,000 blue-eyed black lemurs remain in the wild.

  • Tiny Orphaned Baby Antelope Hand-Reared by Chester Zoo Staff

    This extremely cute little guy is a baby dik dik antelope named Thanos. Chester Zoo released footage of tiny Thanos on Thursday showing how zoo staff cared for the baby calf after the miniature animal tragically lost his mother not long after she gave birth. Staff members of Chester Zoo are taking care of the antelope and feeding him five times per day by hand. They will continue to hand feed the baby until it is able to feed itself independently. Thanos is just 7 inches tall and he's still getting accustomed to his surroundings. Dik dik antelopes are quite small in general, and grow to a maximum of around 16 inches high, 28 inches long, and about 13 pounds. The dik dik is native to eastern and southern Africa and is named after the alarm call of the females.
