According to the "Daily Mail" local time on November 18, a pair of chimpanzee mother and son at the Sedgwick County Zoo in Kansas, USA, occupied the "hot search", and the picture of their reunion moment moved many people, and many people said that they "shed tears".
According to the report, the video was taken by the breeder, and after sharing it on social media, it quickly became a "popular picture" for watching, and was constantly retweeted and commented on.
The mother orangutan, named "Mahale", looked at the baby orangutan "Kucheza" with some confusion, but the moment the child stretched out his hand, Mahale rushed forward excitedly and hugged his baby tightly. It is reported that "Kuczeza" is a Swahili word meaning "to play".
"After almost two full days, Mahale and the baby were finally reunited this morning!" , reads the short article next to the video.
Only after Kucheza, wrapped in a small blanket, was laid out that the Mahale was allowed to walk to its side. But at first, "Mahale" just sat quietly, seemingly unaware that his child was around. When it noticed movement in the small blanket, it leaned over to take a look, and when the little orangutan stretched out its little hand, "Mahale" finally took action, "its love is obvious."
Generally speaking, after the female animal gives birth, she will personally care for the cub as soon as possible, but why did "Mahale" reunite with the child after 2 days?
The keeper explained that "Kuczeza" is very different, it is a baby chimpanzee born by emergency caesarean section.
"Mahale" also experienced a natural birth, but could not successfully deliver the baby, and after seeing that it was difficult to give birth, the zoo nursing staff decided to send him to the hospital for a caesarean section.
This is the picture after the birth of "Kucheza". Despite the success of the operation, the mother's Mahale was fine, but the cub was in a bit of trouble, "the baby couldn't breathe well, so he stayed in the hospital with the medical team until he could be reunited with his mother."
According to Dr Heather Arens, director of animal health at the Sedwick County Zoo, the difficulty with animal delivery is that "doctors cannot carefully monitor the mother to determine contractions". At the same time, she also believes that "Kucheza" was lucky to be born, "not every zoo can have such conditions". It is reported that the zoo has nearly 400 species of animals, and the total number has reached 3,000.
Like unhealthy human newborns, Kucheza was sent to an incubator and adjusted by oxygen, among other means. Fortunately, it recovered quite quickly.
Thousands of people sent blessings to the chimpanzee mother and son, "Oh, look at its little face, its mother must be very happy, happy to have such a reunion." "Look at me crying, such an exciting reunion. The mother looked confused at first, it may have felt that her child was gone, but it was pleasantly surprised in an instant, and it was one of the best images I have ever seen." "Beautiful moments, nature is wonderful".
Another concluded, "Maternal love, unique, irreplaceable, mother is not just a word, it is present in every cell".
