What happened to Farasi?

Does anyone of you know what happened to the baby Hippo born in the Swiss zoo? I had been following his story and that they might have to put him to sleep cos there can't be more than one male hippo in a zoo and most zoos around the world were full.

Did anyone adopt this baby?

Re: What happened to Farasi?

He's still in the Basel Zoo where he can stay until the weaning which is at the age of eight months for hippos according to this article. The zoo will take it from there... at the latest when he is three years old he'll become competition for papa hippo.

At least he has achieved something that most of us here haven't - The Wall Street Journal has published an article about him with that typical black and white portrait
