Keepers at Edinburgh Zoo are celebrating the birth of the zoo's first ever baby banteng calf, who is already happily cantering around the enclosure.
Banteng are listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List, with habitat loss and hunting said to be the two greatest threats to the species. Native to south-east Asia, banteng are very close to extinct in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
Lorna Hughes, team leader for hoof stock and primates at the zoo says the calf, who has been named Kala, is doing well. "He's going from strength to strength and is already proving very popular with our visitors - he certainly has a lot of character!
"This birth is a positive step in helping towards the conservation of these endangered animals as well as educating visitors about their plight." (Image credit Katie Paton)
