There’s a new set of stripes in Denver Zoo’s zebra yard today. Thursday nigh, June 13, Denver Zoo welcomed the birth of an endangered, female Grevy’s (Greh-veez) zebra. At less than a day old, the unnamed foal, is already comfortably exploring her new home with her mother, Topaz, never too far away. Guests can see mom and daughter with the entire herd in the yard now.
 

This is the third foal for Topaz and she is still proving to be an excellent mother, carefully shepherding the young foal around their yard. Topaz and the foal’s father, Punda, were paired under recommendation of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) which ensures healthy populations and genetic diversity among zoo animals. Fortunately, the couple has proved to be an excellent match.
