Three bouncing babies born at the Bali Zoo represent small but significant strides in the propagation of endangered specials.
The Zoo, located at Singapadu, Ginayar, recently welcomed a newborn Bali Starling, a Silvery Gibbon and a baby wallaby.
The births have brought the population of these species at the Zoo to three mynas, five silvery gibbons and nine wallabies.
The Zoo is carefully showcasing their new babies to visitors, using a gathering of the press on Monday, December 3, 2012 to allow a glimpse of the newcomers.
Quoted in Radar Bali, the spokesperson for the facility, Emma Kristiana Chandra, said, “Once again we have been successful in breeding rare and protected animals in the collection of the Bali Zoo.”
The Silvery Gibbon was born to its proud 12-year-old parents Koko and Minuldan Owa on November 17, 2012. The sex of he baby gibbon remains a mystery to zoo workers, however, as the baby primate has remained in the close embrace of its mother since birth.
The baby Bali Starling was hatched on November 21, 2012 and weighed 66 grams at birth.
The baby Wallaby was born on October 6, 2012 weighing 400 grams at birth.
