It was a hot summer’s day at the Valencia Bioparc in Spain when a small zebra decided that she wanted to cool off and what better way to do this other than to jump into the small pond filled with cool water? Although, the little zebra doesn’t know how to swim and she needed to get help in order to get out of the water. Luckily, the zookeepers were keeping a close eye on the zebra baby and they managed to get it out of the water moments before drowning.
The Valencia Bioparc is one of the biggest zoos in Spain. People from all over the world come to visit Valencia and the Bioparc is always at the top of their “to see” list. The reason behind this is that the zoo is home to lots of amazing wild animals.
Even though there are many types of wild animals living in Valencia Bioparc, the zebras are the biggest stars. Not many zoos have zebras and due to their special white and black colors, people love to come and take pictures of them.
Another reason why the zebras are the biggest stars at the Valencia Bioparc is because one of them has recently given birth. The young zebra is adorable and seeing her try to run alongside her mother is a sight to behold.
Our story starts when the young zebra was feeling really hot and tried to cool off by jumping in a small pond. While this might sound like a great idea at first, the problem is that the little zebra doesn’t know how to swim!
Adult zebras aren’t known for their great swimming skills and the young ones don’t know how to move in the water. This is why when the small zebra baby jumped in the water its mamma started stomping her hooves and making noise. The mamma was asking for help!
The tourists who were watching the zebras quickly realized what was going on and they started asking the zookeepers to come and help out. Fortunately, one of the zookeepers was just around the corner and in less than ten seconds he was in the water.
This is the brave zookeeper who jumped in the water without giving it any second thought. He knew that the little zebra baby can’t swim and that he needs to move fast if he wants the young zebra to not drown.
Even though pulling out a small zebra out of the water might not seem like a risky move, it’s actually quite dangerous. The baby zebra is scared and it can always kick the zookeeper and knock him out. Not just that, but the momma is not too friendly as well.
Pulling out the small zebra out of the water was not going to be an easy task and another zookeeper quickly jumped into the water. They needed to move fast because time was running out.
The two zookeepers picked up the little zebra and they started lifting her up. This is when things started getting out of hand because the mamma zebra was scared. She didn’t know what was going on and she wanted to attack the zookeepers.
As we can clearly see, the zebra mamma didn’t care that she was going into the deep water anymore after she realized that her baby might be in danger. She was ready to risk it all!
With great effort, the two zookeepers managed to pick up the baby zebra in their arms. Now, they needed to somehow avoid the angry zebra mamma and bring the baby to the shore where it would be safe.
The zebra mamma couldn’t take it anymore and she jumped into the water. She didn’t know if she should attack the zookeepers or not but she wanted to keep a close eye on them.
After a couple of seconds, the zookeepers managed to start walking towards the shore with the zebra baby in their hands. The little animal was finally safe.
The tourists who were filming this incredible moment started clapping their hands when they saw that the zebra baby is safe. The zookeepers are life savers and there is no doubt about that!
Now that the zebra baby was out of the water, the zookeepers needed to act fast. The zebra momma was looking to attack them because they took her baby. The animal didn’t understand that they are actually saviors.
No one can blame the zebra momma for being overprotective and chasing the zookeepers away. After all, she is doing her job as a mother and keeping her baby safe.
Isn’t it incredible how a mother’s love is so powerful? If there is one thing that we can be sure about, then it has to be the fact that the zebra mamma is never going to let her baby out of her sight anytime soon.
We are glad to let everyone know that this story has a happy ending. The zebra baby is safe and the brave zookeepers did their job well!
Let’s hope that the zebra baby learned a valuable lesson that day. She is surely not going to jump in the middle of the water pond ever again.
