Zookeepers dived into the water to rescue the drowning baby Zebra, and the poor creature's reunion with its mother quickly became famous online.


The breathtaking incident took place at the Zoo in Valencia Bioparc, Spain, recently.

As reported by We Love Animals, a baby zebra nearly died if not for the quick intervention of the staff of the establishment.

As it turns out, the newborn accidentally fell into the pond after being born.

La Niña, one of the zebras that live in Valencia Bioparc, started giving birth about 2.45 pm.

The park activated the protocol of the technical department, which includes observing and confirming that life opens its way most naturally.

But after cutting the umbilical cord and the placenta, the baby fell into the watering hole accidentally and was in threat of drowning.

Fortunately, the two staffs didn't hesitate one bit about guaranteeing the well-being of the creature.

They immediately went into the water and tried to reach the drowning baby zebra and take it out of it.

Realizing the men were there to help, La Niña felt relieved yet at the same time couldn’t wait to be close to her child, so she decided to enter the water herself.

The heroes, who were at that point carrying the baby zebra in their hands, splashed the nervous mother with water to alert her to stay away because they would not want to risk dropping the baby into the water again.

The staffs managed to get her child on the shore once she took a step back. They were glad to help and were eager to give the mother a chance to spend some time with her adorable baby, which turned out to be a male.

With the happy ending, the guests and park staffs breathed a sigh of relief and showed their joy and excitement with applause and congratulations.

Following a calm night, the baby zebra and the mother are well, and instinctively the newborn follows his mother, who keeps up assurance and breastfeeding on demand.

Meanwhile, the other foal that was born in July and the rest of the herd, can't hide their interest for the newcomer.

The people in charge of the zoo took to their social media accounts to share that La Niña and her little calf are entirely well and out of risk.


La Niña arrived in 2007 from the Halle Zoo (Germany) and the father, Zambé, was transferred from Safari de Peaugres (France) in 2012.

The rescue video turned into a web sensation in a couple of hours, getting millions of views online.

This rescue helps us to remember a tourist that saved an impala after it got stuck in the mud at Kruger National Park. The particular moment was caught on camera and before long ended up viral.


The man was commended for his selfless act especially because it was a difficult task. He needed to have enough strength to pull the animal out without falling into the mud himself.

If the man did not save the vulnerable creature, it could have died because of starvation or predators could have attacked it.

Thankfully, even though it looked exhausted, the impala stood up and walked off its limp legs to be reunited with its herd.
