Comments / pictures

When Ratna was a baby, the mother was aggressive towards the baby for several weeks, and the keepers had to stay overnight and see to that the mother did not attack the baby, and that she accepted to wean.

Ratna may be pregnant, she was sired by Chamundi in August 2008, and hasnt come into estrous since then.
