"Hey, you missed my pinky toe..."
One of the most popular animals at the Faruk Yalçın Zoo in Darıca
district of Kocaeli province is Samir the rhinoceros. Prior to the Ramazan
holiday, Samir got a pedicure and a skin treatment. Biologist Pınar Çağtaş
said that Samir (9), who weighs 2.5 tons (!), was brought to the zoo from
Scotland (!) two years ago.
Çağtaş explained that "in the wild rhinos can file their own nails but not
in the zoo. So we gave Samir a pedicure, skin treatment and mouth exam
for the holiday."
