Highlights: An orphaned Kirk's dik-dik antelope named Thanos has become Chester Zoo’s newest arrival. The 19-centimeter-tall baby lost his mother soon after being born on January 8, 2017, leaving his zookeepers to become his adoptive parents. The precious fawn is in good health, feeding from a bottle five times a day as he grows closer to being able to eat on his own. Photos: ZooBorns / Barcroft Images/CFP
