Cotswold Wildlife Park has welcomed a rather significant addition to the Chapman’s Zebra family just in time for Christmas. The birth marks a milestone in the Park’s history as not only is the newborn the tenth breeding success for parents Stella and Spongebob, but she is also the fiftieth Chapman’s Zebra to be born at Cotswold Wildlife Park. It is the only zoological collection in the UK to successfully breed this iconic African species this year. The adorable foal has been named Flora by her keepers.
Female foal born on August 21 at Zoo’s Camel Zebra Area
CHICAGO (August 22, 2023) – Lincoln Park Zoo is excited to welcome a new black and white addition this summer. After confirming the pregnancy via hormone analysis earlier this year, on August 21, 16-year-old Grevy’s zebra Adia gave birth to a healthy, strong female foal. Both Adia and the newborn have been doing well and continue to be closely monitored by expert Animal Care and veterinary staff.
Usually the zebras at The Netherlands’ Burgers' Zoo give birth in peace in the stables at night. This time, however, the animal caretakers witnessed a delivery at the end of the afternoon. Mother and baby are doing well. This is the third zebra born this year at Burgers' Zoo: more will follow. On the Safari's vast savannah grounds at the Arnhem animal park lives a large herd of Grant zebras, usually counting more than twenty animals. Every year, several foals are born and every year zebras leave for other zoos, that's why the number of animals changes regularly. One of the animal caretakers managed to film the birth, so we can now share these special images with you.
The zebra foal that was born in June at DierenPark Amersfoort is a female and has been given the name Zuri. “Zuri is a very playful mare. The independent and curious foal regularly explores the Savannah alone. She is happily frolicking around and that produces beautiful images", animal caretaker Lois van der Velde reveals.
MELBOURNE, Fla., July 20, 2022 — Brevard Zoo's newest Grévy’s zebra has taken his first steps (and a gallop or two) in one of his habitats, the Veldt, in the Zoo’s Expedition Africa section! He will continue making visits under the discretion of the animal care team.
The zebra foal, now named Ziggy, was born on June 30 to 11-year-old Grévy’s zebra Iggy. Animal care staff conducted a neonatal exam later that afternoon and discovered he weighed about 84 pounds.
At the beginning of June, a Burchell zebra was born in Schönbrunn Zoo. The colt weighs around 30 kilograms and is suckled by its mother for about eight months. "The birth of zebras is usually very fast, after about a quarter of an hour it is over. With our current offspring, everything went very well and the young animal is well. It is now exploring the plant and nibbling on the hay with the rest of the herd from time to time. But everything is still close to his mother," reports animal keeper Gregor Hirsch.
Valencia, February 24, 2022.- It seems that the animals of BIOPARC have agreed to celebrate the 14th anniversary of the park, because a few days after announcing the birth of the first Mhorr gazelle of the year, the turn has come to one of the most recognizable species of the savannah area, the group of zebras. As usual, "La Niña" was the female who gave the first happy news, giving birth to a beautiful foal whose sex is still unknown. Being an expert parent, it has not been necessary to intervene at any time and, as happened with the delivery, the upbringing is also developing with excellent normality.
Although Grant's zebra (Equus burchell iboehmi) is the most common species in Africa, it is included in the red list of the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) and the evolution of its populations is motivating a growing concern for the increase in the degree of threat. In this sense, for the entire BIOPARC team it is a great satisfaction not only to provide maximum well-being to these animals, but also to confirm that the "Valencian" herd continues to consolidate itself as a reference breeding group for this emblematic species. The father is the male Zambé and “the family” is completed with the other two adult females, Bom and Lucy, and the young Filomeno, son of “La Niña”.
