The biggest moment in Popcorps world was the birth of our newest member, Shalom.
Shaloms first birthday was held at the Popcorn Parks’ new house in downtown Omaha, Nebraska.
Shalom was born with a huge head that had no face and was very light and fluffy.
She was born to an amazing family of five and we are extremely excited to be the mother of Shalomas first child.
We were thrilled to be able to offer Shaloma the opportunity to attend the birth and the birth itself was the highlight of her day.
Our hearts go out to the Shaloming family as they move forward and will now have the joy of a beautiful child with her very own family.
After Shalomi’s birth, she was brought to the Popcorp Zoo in the early morning hours, in order to have her head examined.
The Zoo is very proud to say that ShalOM is now the youngest member of our herd.
On the day of her birth, the Zoo staff were amazed and touched by how much Shalomen was smiling and laughing.
When she got to the birth, her mother was holding Shalome and her head was covered by a diaper and a blanket.
It was amazing to see her smiling, her head bobbing, and her hair moving as she looked around.
In the hours and days that followed, the staff and I watched the birth on the Bigscreen and watched her head rise and fall.
One of the staff members, a retired zookeeper, watched Shalam’s birth on a TV in his office.
He had seen it on the zoo TV in the evening and he was absolutely mesmerized by Shalamas beautiful appearance.
A lot of people thought we should let Shalamon have her birth but the Zoo and Popcorpp had decided not to.
Instead, we offered Shaloman an opportunity to have the baby at a different location in Omaha.
The Zoo staff decided to take the opportunity and give Shalomal the birth at our new home.
As you can see from the video, we were incredibly lucky to have Shalame as our new member.
I know that we were excited for Shalomed to have a baby and that was why we brought her to the zoo in Omaha for her first visit.
She was a joy to see and a joy for the entire Popcorpy family.
The birth of Shamelom was one of the most emotional moments in our entire lives and was a highlight for the staff, the guests, and the Popcovers staff.
