On the evening of April 7, the first baby milu deer was born in Nanhaizi Milu Deer Park in Beijing. The baby deer was named “Luhu” by the staff.Based on the number of fertile adult females in the herd, researchers estimate that about 40 baby milu deer will be born this year.Every milu deer calving season, researchers and keepers at the Beijing Research Institute of Science and Technology will increase the number of visits to record the number and health of newborn deer.April 7 morning, the staff on patrol found that there was a mother deer behavior is slightly different: it is not as usual to eat food feeding point, but far away from the herd, hovering in the reserve small slope, alone and very alert attention to the surrounding environment, sometimes raise tail and stretched out his neck licking the ventral hair back.”This doe might give birth!”The experienced staff watched the deer through binoculars until noon, when the female still hadn’t given birth. “She had been resting quietly under the woods on the southeast side of the small mound,” they said.In the afternoon, staff continued to observe the doe.Until about 6 o ‘clock in the evening, the baby milu deer was finally born smoothly.After the fawn is born, in order to replenish the massive energy expended during childbirth and reduce the risk of the fawn being discovered by natural enemies, the mother fawn quickly eats all the afterbirth.Then, in order to give the new fawn enough strength to stand up, the mother licks the wet fawn dry and leaves a scent on it to establish mother-child “communication”.Within minutes of birth, the fawn made an effort to stand up, but failed.More than 10 minutes later, after several attempts, the fawn finally stood up and walked to its mother, trembling, to drink its first milk.The observation was a relief, as the first milk is crucial for a newborn fawn.Photography zhi-bin cheng source: Beijing daily client | reporter Chen Qiang correspondent Zhi-bin cheng process editor: U016 statement: this article, all peer originator if there are sources of errors or infringe upon the lawful rights and interests of you, you can through the E-mail contact us, we will be handled in a timely manner.Email address:
