What’s black and white and new at the zoo? Our new baby zebra!
We’re thrilled to announce that in the early morning hours on May 21st, our Hartmann’s Mountain zebra, ‘Leba’, gave birth to a healthy female foal! Mom and baby are bonding well and settling in together. You can already spot (or should we say ‘stripe’?) the little one running around the African Savannah yard.

Join us in welcoming this little one to the zoo family!
