When he was two weeks old, animal caretakers at the MRZ noticed that Kumbali wasn’t gaining weight. In fact, he was losing weight, making him the runt of his litter. Caretakers removed the cub to bottle-raise him, with the hope of being able to boost his weight, and then eventually reintroduce him to his family. However, the animal caretakers discovered that his mom, Khari, was not producing enough milk for her three cubs. Zoo staff decided to keep hand-raising the cub to ensure his health and growth.
