The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens last week announced that there was a last animal birth of 2012 and indeed it was a last minute birth. On December 31st, "Sala" the zoo's female Brazilian Ocelot gave birth to a kitten. The female ocelot, "Sala", was artificially inseminated by the zoo's male ocelot, "Monseiur". Currently both mom and baby are off exhibit while they bond and have their quiet time. Later this spring the zoo is hoping to transfer them to the Night Hunter's exhibit. This makes the fifth birth via artificial insemination in the world for ocelots who have been endangered for the last 25 years. So make sure you congratulate the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens on yet another birth and help them welcome their newest addition later on this spring.
