Copenhagen – Mothers and kids

The chimp mother Marti (32 years old) loves to play with her kids. The games can seem rather violent but in the video you can hear that it’s her son Mutai (3 years old) that screams. It’s only when a chimpanze shows the teeth that the situation can get dangerous.


Zebra mangust baby has a tender moment with mama.


The three Amur leopard kittens had their first medical check. All three are healthy and doing fine.

This baby doesn’t look too amused before the vet visit …. but who is looking forward to meet a doc? 🙂


Two of the kittens are boys and one is a girl.



At last the unwanted ‘adventure’ is over and the kittens could join there mama in the den.


In the video you can see how the medical check went.

Just like we humans even a kapybara baby can get a hickup. It isn’t so easy to look cool when you have to say ‘hick’ and ‘hick’ and ‘hick’ …. 🙂

Knuti’s Weekly wishes all the adorable babies and their mothers all the best!

  1. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to the animals in Copenhagen Zoo.

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the sweets on a cold and rainy sunday!
    These cuties are for sure the pride of the Copenhagen Zoo and the visitors must be happy to see them.
    Watching the video of the little capybara with its hickup and reading the subtitles brought a big grin into my face…


  3. Liebe Mervi,

    die Herzdruckmassage auf schimpansisch ruft wahre Begeisterungsschreie hervor und wirkt auch nicht bedrohlich. Den Babytieren in Copenhagen geht es prima und bei der Mangustenmama sieht man eindeutig die Wirkung des GlĂĽckshormons Oxytocin bei der liebevollen Umarmung ihres Babys, derweil die Amurtigerbabies den Doc auch lieber von hinten sehen….

    Danke fĂĽr die erfreulichen Videos an einem tristen und grauen Sonntag!

  4. The mother-child and mother-children-videos are super-cute; however when I see the videos with the babies who are about to get chipped I feel pity with them!

    Mother chimpanzee seems to play rather rough with her little one but it seems that it likes the play anyway.

    The pics are also lovely.

    Thank you, dear Mervi, for having brought another time those entertaining infos, pics and videos from Copenhagen.

  5. Thanks dear Mervi for showing sweet pictures from Copenhagen Zoo.
    I was there a week ago (having a Zoo-card/entrace-card you could bring a guest) in nice weather. Both polarbar cubs were charming.
    Lots of greetings from Copenhagen

  6. Dear Mervi

    It is always a great pleasure to see the animal children in the zoo.
    They are all always cute and especially sweet.


  7. Dear Mervi!
    All mothers and kids are lovely. I like the Amur leopard kittens mostly.

  8. Dear Mervi and Inge
    Copenhagen do a great job in looking after their animals and letting us know how they are getting on.
    Thank you for sharing the pictures with us.
    All the best

  9. Der kleine Leopard ist besonders niedlich.
    Aber auch die jungen Mangusten sind
    entzückend ! 🙂

  10. Danke fuer diesen bezaubernden Kindergarten.

    Liebe Gruesse, Erika

  11. Liebe Mervi,
