A Goat And Ram Are Getting Married At This Chinese Wildlife Park
Feb 15, 2012 12:41
True love is blind it seems. A ram named Changmao and a doe named Chunzi at China's Yunna Provincial Wildlife Park are going to get an inter-species wedding. What a publicity stunt for the park!
But there's also some real affection between the two animals. Chunzi licks the hair of the ram like she would a normal deer mate, and Changmao attacks any male deer that attempts to approach his chosen doe. There seems to be an unusual bond between the two.
Interspecies relationships aren't unheard of, especially at zoos where different species are raised in close proximity to one another. But like any other relationship, they've gone through some bad times too. The BBC recounts:
But Changmao has not been exactly faithful to Chunzi. He fathered a baby lamb with the zoo's only female sheep. That was why zoo officials decided to separate the ram and the doe in November last year. However, when zookeepers put Changmao with his lamb and its mother, he became violent. Chunzi, for her part, squeezed through the fence to be near him.
Nikon strapped a Bluetooth heart rate sensor with a custom built camera case and a Coolpix L31 to an adorable border collie named Grizzler. The camera measures the pup's heart rate and shoots above a pre-set rate, meaning, anything that excites Grizzler, quickly becomes a photograph. Read more
