Kwantu announces baby hippo birth

Kwantu Private Game Reserve welcomed the arrival of a new hippopotamus calf to its reserve in the Eastern Cape. The young bull, Lihle which means handsome in isiXhosa, was born last month on the reserve and will stay close to his mother Nomakhosi since calves nurse for about eight months. The reserve veterinary team estimates that Lihle weighs between 30 – 50 kilograms. Kwantu CEO Shakir Jeeva said Lihle is very strong.
