Auckland Zoo welcomes zebra foal
Auckland Zoo welcomed a beautiful zebra foal in the very early hours of Christmas eve 2018.
Seven year old female zebra Layla and foal (sex still unknown) are both doing well. However, it is still early days so the Auckland Zoo team are monitoring them closely while they take this time to bond and the foal gets used to a whole new world of zebra, giraffe, humans and other creatures.
This is the 43rd zebra foal born at Auckland Zoo, the last zebra foal was born in 2010 – a Plains zebra – male Unyazi on 21st September 2010.
Auckland Zoo now has five zebra (plain zebra species) as part of the Australasian regional breeding programme that include female Itika (26 years old); male Carlo (11 years old); female sisters Layla (7) and Dalila (5) and the new foal.
