CityNews – Last Saturday, promoter for Chiang Mai’s Night Safari Darasarawut Sisagun welcomed new members to the zoo including a new female Barbari who was born on 4th April this year.
The little Barbari was raised by her mum and is the eighth Barbari to join the Night Safari; there are currently six female members and two male members. Barbaris, or mountain sheep, are a type of sheep that usually dwell in forests, although they can also be found in the deserts of northern Africa. Their coats are brown/red in colour, and the hair is longer on their necks, chests and legs than the rest of their bodies. Their bodies are long and curved and the males are bigger in size than the females.
In addition to the baby Barbari, the Night Safari also welcomed two new male and one new female Red River boars who were born on 22nd May this year. They are currently being looked after by their mum in the Night Safari’s Sawana Safari; the Red River boar family now consists of seven males and three females. Red River boars are a special type of wild boar: the babies’ bodies are reddy-brown in colour with black legs, their ears are long and their snouts black and white. They have stripes along their bodies and around their eyes which will disappear as they get older. Their cheeks and teeth are soft in colour – giving the appearance that they are wearing face masks! They hunt for food in the evenings but eat only shrubbery in the days. Red River boars are excellent swimmers, as is acknowledged by their name.
