Saticoy, a 6-week-old condor who is the darling of people all over the world thanks to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park's Condor Cam, received a veterinary exam on Monday, including blood collection for lab tests, microchip placement and a West Nile virus vaccine. In the 1980s, there were fewer than two dozen wild condors, but those numbers have rebounded to an estimated 386 today thanks to efforts by zoos in the U.S. and Mexico and government agencies.
