On the other hand, a zoo in Veracruz disclosed that a small Bengal tiger was born in good health, but was named the COVID pandemic for a reason.
Africa Bio Zoo is the zoo that gave birth to “Covid”, a small Bengal tiger, which came to the world on March 15 in that entity.
“Covid” is the fruit of two specimens that the zoo has, the mother of eight years and the father of six.
According to the first reports, it weighed 1.4 kilos and the people in charge of the place decided to give it a name related to the coronavirus pandemic , which affects several countries in the world.
At the zoo, he stated that they chose the name as a symbol of “hope” because the virus, despite being lethal, is an opportunity for humanity to reflect.
“It is a virus that came to teach us how to take care of ourselves. That it is hurting, yes, but it is teaching us to reconsider. And it is a name of hope. That is Covid, ”said Gonzalo Rodríguez, owner of the zoo.
It should be noted that the site where “Covid” was born specializes in saving animals from circuses and the people who keep them as pets.
“The mother could not get pregnant because she had a hip problem but this male managed to mount her because her weight is a little smaller, it is not that big so it was a successful reproduction.” Said Kitzia Rodriguez, a local veterinarian.
Veterinarians revealed that the cub was fed with a bottle from the moment of birth, since the mother was unable.
