(BABY ANIMALS/ZOOS/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) Keepers at the Chester Zoo have stepped in to raise an orphaned baby antelope, following the death of his mother, who passed away shortly after giving birth. The one-month-old orphan dik-dik named Thanos is currently being bottle fed by staff five times a day until he’s old enough to eat by himself. At just 19cm tall, he’s no bigger than a Coke bottle and is still too light to register on the zoo’s scales.
“He may be tiny but he is certainly making a big impression on everyone at the zoo,” said assistant team manager Kim Wood. — Global Animal
