Mother Orangutan Leans To Kiss Her Newborn Baby At Florida Zoo
The relationship between mothers and their kids are special whether they are humans or animals. The stories of mother taking good care of their children is like an established fact and seldom that we see a mother handling her kid with carelessness. As a matter of fact, mothers belonging to different species also take care of their babies with utmost care and want their well-being at the cost of anything.
1 Bornean orangutan was seen kissing her newborn baby
Recently, in a heart-warming incident, a rare Bornean orangutan was seen leaning on her newborn baby to kiss her. The new mom Dee Dee was seen cuddling her little baby after few days of her birth which happened at the Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo in Florida.
2 Human pregnancy test confirmed pregnancy in October
The primate which is critically endangered took birth earlier this month. At birth, the primate weighed only three pounds. The authorities at the zoo came to know about the pregnancy of mother-of-five Dee Dee by using human pregnancy test way back in October.
3Dee Dee continues to do well with her female baby
Dr. Ray Ball, who works at the zoo, said, “Dee Dee continues to do well with her female baby. As an experienced mother, she didn’t show any signs of any possible issues. We determined that Dee Dee’s baby had turned during one of her regular ultrasound exams.”
4 Careful monitoring and pre-natal care are important
“Careful monitoring and pre-natal care are important, but so is privacy. With veterinary medicine, the baby determines the day of birth, but the mom determines the time. With no signs of a high risk pregnancy, we let her take care of the labor naturally – she determined when it would be time to deliver her baby,” Dr. Ray added.
