Conceal

During a foal’s first two days of life, the mother keeps him close and limits direct contact with the other zebras so that he learns to identify her by sight, smell and sound. However, those single-toe hooves were made for walking, and within 15 minutes from birth, the foal is able to stand up on his own. Within an hour, he is walking and able to accompany his mother as she rejoins the herd.

Helmeted guineafowl are characterised by their black or grey plumage with vivid white spots. Their bald faces and necks have blue skin with red wattles (males’ wattles are larger than those of the females). The beak is short and stout and there is a brown or orange helmet on their crown that has a triangular horn shape. These birds are omnivorous and they forage for food. They are opportunistic eaters and will dine on a variety of seeds, fruit, vegetables, snails, small mammals, worms, spiders, frogs, lizards, and small snakes. They usually feed in the early morning and late afternoon.

Peek

The King Cheetah, also known as Cooper’s Cheetah, was once thought to be a separate sub-species. But it is actually an African Cheetah exhibiting a rare fur pattern mutation. A recessive gene must be inherited from both parents in order for this “blotchy” pattern to appear. First discovered in Zimbabwe in 1926, this very rare animal has been seen in the wild only 6 times. It has been known to exist in Zimbabwe, Botswana and in the northern part of South Africa’s Transvaal province. The De Wildt Cheetah Research Centre in South Africa specializes in breeding this cat in captivity.
