Baby zebra almost drowned and mother’s reaction leaves her speechless

The saving

The Bioparc swimming pool is small enough for an adult zebra to swim in it without the risk of drowning. But for baby zebras, the water is too deep, which means a baby zebra cannot touch the bottom of the pool.

La Nina started to panic. The baby started to drown, panting desperately to breathe. The mother stood on the shore, confused, disoriented and desperate. To innocent onlookers, this feat of pulling a zebra out of the water doesn’t seem like much. But baby zebras can weigh between 30 and 40 kg, which means that it is very difficult to catch them. In addition, the panic caused by the drowning made this baby animal very dangerous.

Will the zookeepers be there to help?
