1st baby pangolin in Europe born in Prague zoo
A Chinese pangolin has been born in the Prague zoo, the first birth of the critically endangered animal in captivity in Europe, and is doing well after initial troubles, the park said on Thursday.
For the first few days after the baby female was born on Feb. 2, park keepers were worried because it was losing weight.
The reason was found to be that the mother, Run Hou Tang, didn’t have enough milk. Following consultations with experts from Taiwan, a program of artificial feeding with milk from a cat was introduced and the mother was stimulated to produce more of her own.
That turned things around, with the zoo now expressing cautious optimism about the pup, which still has no name but has been nicknamed “Little Cone” because it resembles a spruce cone.
pup：名詞，動物幼崽；小狗。例句：We found three little pups under our car.（我們在車底下發現三隻幼犬。）
turn sth around：片語，使（企業、計畫或體系）好轉，使扭轉，使有起色。例句：The new management team turned the ailing company around in under six months.（新的管理團隊使這個不景氣的公司，在不到半年的時間裡煥發生機。）
