Florida Zoo Announces Birth Of Southern White Rhino

ZooTampa welcomed a baby southern white rhino to the family. The calf was born during the overnight hours of Sunday, June 6, 2021. The female calf and her mom, 20 -year-old Alake, an experienced mother, are doing well. According to NBC News: "A Florida zoo announced the birth of a southern white rhino, the eighth to be born in Tampa as part of a plan to help the species. Officials at ZooTampa at Lowry Park said the baby was born to a 20-year-old rhino named Alake last week. The female calf has not been named yet, but both baby and mother are healthy and doing well."

"Alake was paired with the only adult male in the Tampa zoo, Ongava. Their calf will join the crash, or group of rhinos, in the coming weeks, zoo officials said. Visitors will be able to see the baby rhino in the new Expedition Wild Africa attraction, set to open soon." We are so happy to hear both that mom and baby are doing well, and that plans to help the species recover are working!

Sweet Robin Couple Becomes Parents (Videos)

Hello to all and to all a good day! Boy, do we have a treat for you today! It's not every day we get to witness the miracle of new life being brought into this world. Birth and life in the animal kingdom looks veryyy different from our human world. The American Robin goes through the (not so simple!) process of laying and incubating eggs until their bird babies are ready to hatch and enter the world! Birds are awesome.

The American Robin is an icon of American springtime, known for their bright orange bellies and beautiful songs! Fun fact: the American Robin is the state bird for Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin. These birds have clearly captured  the attention these states' residents, and today they've captured ours as well! Let's watch this magical process.

We all love our birthdays, right? Getting gifts is amazing, having people who you haven't heard of for a while contact you to say happy birthday, having an excuse to get all of your friends together on the same day. It's great. Some people think that it's silly to celebrate your pets' birthdays, but we disagree. It's extremely important, and it's even more important to celebrate the birthdays of senior pets

We even think that we should get your pet some gifts. Honestly, we thought that the gifts we got our pets we pretty damn cool - favorite snacks, more toys, extra long walks, but... this person has outdone us all. They got their bestest doggo a whole puppy for his birthday, and it's too adorable for this world.

People Celebrating Their Senior Pets' Special Birthdays (Tweets)

No, I can't come hang out with you today, I'm celebrating my cat's Quinceañera. Yes, that's a perfect reason not to hang out with someone. This is a very important thing. And if the person you're talking to doesn't understand your reasoning for not hanging out with them, then they clearly don't know what it's like to have a pet, let alone a senior one. 

Every single birthday is precious with senior pets. Every day is deserving of celebration. Especially, when it comes to the most special kinds of birthdays - happy 10s, sweets sixteens, Quinceañeras. Need to look for as many reasons as possible to celebrate them. And today, we're joining in on twitter's celebration of senior pets, because they've earned it.

So, happy birthday to allllll the senior pets out there!! We hope you get many, many more birthdays such as this one.

Three-Legged Senior Cat That Has Cancer Celebrates 13th B-day (Viral Thread)

Happy birthday, Goober! Goober is turning 13, and we are so in love with him. He has gone through so much -  chronic sinusitis, losing a leg to cancer and growing a tumor in another leg. He has stayed strong the whole way through, and we are so dang proud of him. He's doing okay, surrounded by people who love him, and he is such a brave survivor, all we want is to give him treats and love. 

Thank you to ReluctantGenius for sharing his story with us. We as well as the rest of the internet are more than happy to show some love to this adorable little senior furball. We hope he gets to live for a long, long time and enjoy every single minute of his life.

Celebrating The 120th Birthday Of The Oldest Known Nile Crocodile

Happy 120th  birthday to the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity - Henry! 

It truly is a rarity for these gorgeous crocodiles to get to 120 years of age, so, to celebrate, the Crocworld Conservation Centre on the KZN South Coast threw Henry the Nile crocodile a birthday party! Henry and the staff celebrated his birthday together, with the staff eating birthday cake, and Henry getting his favorite of all meaty snack. 

The crocodile arrived at the Crocworld Conservation Centre in 1985 when he was at the young age of 85. Today, he is five meters long, 700 kilograms in weight, and he is the father of over 10,000 offspring with his six female cohabitants. So, one can easily say that getting older has definitely not slowed Henry down even one bit.

Being the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity, Henry has got many, many more years of leisure, relaxations (and a good time with the ladies) in his wonderful sanctuary. On top of all of his other very impressive achievements, he has also been listed at the second oldest crocodile in the world, with the number 1 spot having been taken by Mr. Freshie who was 140 years when he passed in 140. 

We wish Henry many more birthdays in the future, and may he break Mr. Freshie's record and live long beyond that as well.

Australian Park Welcomes First Baby Koala Since The Devastasting Fires

Congratulations to the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales, and to the mother, Rosie!

A ray of hope is lit in the land down under as Ash, the first koala to be born months after the devastating bushfires that gripped the continent. Up to 85% of the koala population was wiped out between November 2019 and February 2020. 

Australian Reptile Park Zookeeper, Dan Rumsey told BuzzFeed News, "Ash represents the start of what we're hoping to be another successful breeding season. It was such an incredible moment when we saw Ash poke her head out of her mum's pouch for the first time!"

And while it is the first time the world (and zookeepers) have seen the baby, Ash is already 5 months old. 

"Ash is estimated to be 5 months old and is right on track to be emerging from the pouch for the first time. Her mother Rosie has shown exemplary parenting skills and we know that Ash is in good paws," Rumsey added.

The park is said to reopen on June 1st and just in time for visitors to see the ray of hope themselves!
