San Antonio Zoo is excited to share this very special and rare footage: their Aviculture team welcoming a Micronesian kingfisher chick – one of the world’s most endangered animals – to the world!
This is the youngest of the 2 Micronesian Kingfishers hatched this year.
He was malpositioned in the egg, and was not going to be capable of hatching on his own.
San Antonio zoo specializes in moments like this where "assisted hatches" are necessary.
