Daisy, The Orphan Oryx, Has Had a Baby!

August 14, 2005 Sara Spendrup

Daisy, the orphan oryx, has had a baby! Mother and calf were found yesterday, both in good health. Her male, a one-horned oryx, is not far form her side at all times. We suspect that this is the father

Daisy was found alone, abandoned by her mother, on a neighbouring ranch and was brought to Lewa where Clare Moller became her new mom about three years ago.

Out of all the orphans that we have had Daisy is one of our success stories. She often stays around the workshop area and likes human contact but obviously she is also out in the wild, socializing with the other wild onyx's on Lewa.

We sincerely hope that Daisy's calf will be another success story here on Lewa.
