Filed under: Cuteness!ZooRhinos

Zoo Basel's new baby rhino was born as naturally as possible!

Zoo Basel is Switzerland has a brand new baby rhino running around their enclosure!

31-year-old Indian Rhinoceros Ellora gave birth to her male calf Kiran, a cutie baby who was born weighing 150-pounds and standing 2.1-feet-tall!!

The zoo took an inneresting approach to the birth, doing two very unconventional but natural things.

This was the first rhino birth in European that took place in front of an older sibling. Normally, when a rhino gives birth in captivity, the siblings are moved to a different location for the calf's safety.

But Kiran's older sister Henna, though uneasy at first, took an eventual liking to her little brother after being by Ellora's side during the birth.

Brand New Baby Hippo Is Impossicute!!

Filed under: Cuteness!Hippos

Baby hippo

Zoo Basel in Switzerland just welcomed a new baby hippo on July 17th!!

22-year-old mama Helvetia gave birth to the little babe in a ditch in her outdoor enclosure.

After the wee baby was born, 23-year-old Wilhelm, the papa, tried to sneak a peak at his baby, but mama Helvetia was having none of that!

She kept shooing him away, because she's super protective of her new baby.

What's crazy is the baby has to dive underwater to be able to drink his mama's milk! He resurfaces every 30 seconds for a breath of fresh air.

That sounds tiring!!

He'll be eating solid foods in a few weeks, but for now, it's all about diving down and getting a meal.

The baby hippo is the tenth baby for the hippo parents but he's still just as special and unique as any of the other babies!!

So cute!

Techno Kills Dolphins

Filed under: Music MinuteSad SadDolphinsCrazzzzy

At a Swiss amusement park, two dolphins died recently, after a loud techno party took place only a few yards away.

The dolphins were subjected to 16 hours of loud, thumping electronic music. Animal activists say this type of music can stress dolphins out so much that they drop dead.

And that's what they're claiming happened. An 8-year-old dolphin died 20 days after the party. Then another, 30-year-old, dolphin died soon after.

So sad.

No one is sure if the techno actually lead to the death of the marine mammals, and Connyland, the amusement park, would be the first to deny it, having said on their website:
