Emotional reunion between a chimp and her newborn will leave you teary-eyed
After a chimpanzee was separated from her newborn for two days, their heartening reunion was recorded by the zoo nurses. Take a look at the video inside.
At the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas, a mother chimpanzee and her baby had the most heartwarming reunion after being separated for over two days due to issues with birth. The infant was delivered on Tuesday by C-section. The hospital officials chose to keep the chimp for two days because it was struggling to breathe on its own. So, when the chimp was finally sent back to its mother, it was an emotional reunion. In the video, the mother, Mahale, is seen hugging her son after two days of being apart from her child. The baby chimp was named Kucheza, which means 'play' in Swahili.
In the post's caption, the Sedgwick County Zoo wrote, "Mahale gave birth via C-section after her labor had stopped progressing. The baby wasn't getting enough oxygen on his own at birth, so he had to stay in the hospital to receive treatment and care from the medical team until he was healthy enough to return to mom."
