Columbus Zoo http://wmub.org en Manatee finds new home http://wmub.org/post/manatee-finds-new-home <p>A young, female manatee named "Woodstock" is the newest addition to the <a href="http://cincinnatizoo.org/" target="_blank">Cincinnati Zoo</a>. The 900-pound, two-year-old arrived Friday from the Columbus Zoo.</p><p>Though born in the wild, Woodstock was rescued along with her mother off the Southwest coast of Florida in 2011. Both were victims of cold-stress (prolonged exposure to low temperatures), and while Woodstock survived, her mother did not.</p><p>Woodstock is making her new home in the Zoo's Manatee Springs exhibit where she'll be a companion for the Zoo's other female, Betsy.</p> Fri, 11 Jan 2013 20:49:27 +0000 Tana Weingartner 7958 at http://wmub.org Manatee finds new home
