Mishmi Takin / Kolmården Wildlife Park


A Mishmi Takin calf, named Nanook, was born on 19 February at Kolmården Wildlife Park. Mother to the handsome male calf is Aisha, and his father is Hobbit.

Nanook is the first successful Takin birth for the Swedish zoo. He was born in the early morning of a cold, snowy day. The name Nanook was chosen by the keepers, in honour of his day of birth, and means polar bear in Inuit. At birth, Nanook weighed-in at a healthy 7 kilos — via ZooBorns
