100th Takhi of Khomyn Tal.

On July 22nd, the Takhi population in newly established Khomyn Tal
National Park has reached 100. A foal, female, was born to a mare
named Sharga. Since June, twelve foals have been born eleven of which
are live births.  Approximately the same number of foals are expected
to be born by autumn this year. Takhi or Przewalski horse status has
been upgraded from extinct in the wild to critically endangered then
endangered by IUCN, thanks to successful reintroduction in three
locations in Mongolia, its native habitat. In Khomyn Tal, twelve
horses were brought from France in 2004, followed by ten more in 2005
and four horses from Prague Zoo, Czech Republic.
