Vicugnas at the Berlin Zoo. / Викуньи в Берлинском зоопарке.

2년 전
Last time I showed charming Vicugna from the Moscow zoo . В прошлый раз я показала очаровательную викунью из Московского зоопарка .
Today I will add a couple from the Berlin Zoo. Photos taken in April 2015. Сегодня дополню парой из Берлинского зоопарка. Фотографии сделаны в апреле 2015 года.
Isn't it very pretty these Vicugnas? Не правда ли, очень симпатичные эти викуньи?


I told about the traditions of the Indians, for whom the vicunas were sacred animals. Nowadays, when the number of Vicugnas was restored, Peru also revived the ancient traditions associated with these animals. It is no accident in Peru. After all, the vicunas adorn the emblem of this country. Since 1993, the festival of vicuna has been held in Peru. At the same time, on the one hand, the local population was entrusted with the care of Vicugnas, on the other hand, the communities received the right to the sale of wool. Я рассказывала о традициях индейцев, для которых викуньи были священными животными. В наше время, когда численность викуний удалось восстановить, в Перу возродили и старинные традиции, связанные с этими животными. Не случайно именно в Перу. Ведь, викуньи красуются на гербе этой страны. С 1993 года в Перу проводят фестиваль викуньи. При этом, с одной стороны на местное население возложили заботу о викуньях, с другой – общины получили право на доходы от продажи шерсти.
The holiday is called Chaccu and is held from May to October. A chain of several hundred people - local residents, and now often tourists - takes in a ring Vicugnas grazing in the area. People shouting and clapping to send animals to a special paddock. Here Vicugnas will be trimmed, getting the most valuable wool. This is accompanied by ancient rituals. Dressed in colorful costumes, Indians ask the gods for permission to use the gifts of nature. Праздник называется Чаку и проводится с мая по октябрь. Цепь из нескольких сотен людей - местных жителей, а сейчас часто и туристов - берёт в кольцо пасущихся в данной местности викуний. Люди криками и хлопками направляют животных к специальному загону. Здесь будут обстригать викуний, получая ценнейшую шерсть. Это сопровождается древними ритуалами. Одетые в красочные костюмы индейцы просят у богов разрешения воспользоваться дарами природы. Церемония называется «тинкачу».
After turning to the gods, they hold the so-called wedding of Vicugnas. This is a symbolic act, but a couple of Vicugnas have to suffer a little in the process. In male and female, one ear is incised and the leaked blood is collected. This action symbolizes the marriage of animals and, according to the beliefs of the Incas, guarantees their further reproduction. Blood is mixed with each other, as well as with wine. It is drunk by those who conduct the ceremony and honored guests. Tourists can simply anoint this mixture on cheeks. После обращения к богам проводят так называемую свадьбу викуний. Это символическое действо, но парочке викуний приходится немного пострадать в его ходе. У самца и самки надрезают по одному уху и собирают вытекшую кровь. Это действо символизирует бракосочетание животных и, по верованиям инков, гарантирует их дальнейшее размножение. Кровь смешивают между собой, а также с вином. Её выпивают те, кто проводит церемонию и почетные гости. Туристам могут просто помазать этой смесью щёки.
After the ritual, all captured Vicugnas are inspected, marked, provided with the necessary veterinary assistance. Only adult animals are choose for trim wool, the coat length of which is not less than 3 cm. After shearing and inspection of all Vicugnas they are released into the wild. После ритуала всех пойманных викуний осматривают, метят, оказывают необходимую ветеринарную помощь. Стригут только взрослых животных, длина шерсти которых не менее 3 см. После стрижки и осмотра всех викуний выпускают на волю.

Будешь в зоопарке (ну, хоть, в московском), обрати внимание. Они хорошенькие.


Если дети сводят. 😂
