Sea turtles hatch for the
first time in the North
Chiang Mai Zoo Aquarium was fortunate to have
two sets of baby turtles hatch this week, with the first group, the first ever
hatched in the North, on July 6 when 89 baby Hawksbill Sea Turtles emerged. On
July 8, a further 50 baby Hawskbill Sea Turtles were hatched. The baby turtles
will be on display at the Aquarium until HM the Queen’s birthday on August 10
when they will be released into the wild at the same time as 99 baby sharks in
honor of Her Majesty the Queen and her tireless work to protect sea life.
Lin Ping predicts World Cup win for Spain
Paul the Octopus was not the only one to correctly
predict World Cup glory for Spain as Chiang Mai Zoo’s resident panda Lin Ping
chose to drink milk out of a Spanish flag emblazoned cup three times on Saturday,
July 11. Interestingly, in an unscheduled fourth time, she turned over the cup
with the flag of the Netherlands on it.
