Hutchinson Zoo holds gender reveal party for new baby beavers
HUTCHINSON, Kan. (KWCH) - Hutchinson Zoo held a gender reveal party for twin baby beavers.
Beaver parents Nora and Clover, and aunt Nugget welcomed two baby beavers to the family. The twins were born in April; however, it is not easy to identify the gender of a beaver.
The zoo worked with Hutchinson’s Apple Lane Animal Hospital and UC Davis Veterinary Genetics Laboratory to determine the gender of the beavers.
At last Friday’s Family Zoo Nights, the zoo hosted a gender reveal party that revealed that both kits are boys.
The zoo will hold its last Family Zoo Night of the year on Aug. 13, giving animal lovers another opportunity to catch the baby beavers.
