Nature is always able to surprize us. Calendar shows us that spring has already passed its equator and soon summer will come. This change in weather was a surprize not only for humans but also for Zoo animals.
Today during "Kharkiv online" TV programme the name for the camel cub was chosen. The young female was called Marta (March). On the official page of Kharkiv Zoo in social network everyone could leave his/her variant of the name. More than 250 variants were proposed. We chose 10 finalists (these were the names that had been offered more than three times).
Traditionally the upcoming of spring means nature feast. Spring is a start for everything new. Early in the morning birds start singing. They sing how wonderful this world is. For Kharkov Zoo the beginning of spring brough a replenishment in camels' family. On the 21st of March a camel cub was born.
While talking about the strength of a live creature we tend to imagine a huge animal - an elephant, a rhino or a gorilla. But strength does not always coincide with big dimensions.

A common ant is able to carry a weight that is 20 times as heavy as its own body.
The International Wild Nature Day is a new event that was assigned by the General Assembly of OUN in December of 2013. This date was chosen owing to the other event - the 3rd of March, 1973, when the CITES Cconvention was accepted.
