Cincinnati Zoo welcomed a newly hatched red-crowned crane chick on July 7.
Footage shared to Facebook by the zoo shows the tiny chick exploring its enclosure.
“Red-crowned cranes are native to Asia and endangered in the wild. They incubate for 26-31 days and chicks stay with the parents around one year. They are one of the largest crane species and are very aquatic,” the zoo said.
According to post, it’s the first chick that has hatched at the zoo since 2006. Credit: Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden via Storyful
