Denver Zoo Welcomes First Przewalski's Species Horse In More Than 20 Years

There is a new baby at the Denver Zoo! The first of its species at the zoo in more than 20 years! 


Denver Zoo
Denver Zoo is celebrating the birth of an endangered Przewalski's (sheh-VAL-skee’s) horse foal, born this morning, May 31. The unnamed foal, whose gender is still not known, is not only the first birth for mother, Yisun, and father, Bataar, but also the first birth of its species at Denver Zoo since 1991. The foal is quietly exploring its yard under the watchful eye of its mother, but guests can see them both from the zoo’s main pathway now.
 

The Przewalski’s horse is considered the only remaining, truly “wild” horse in the world and may be the closest living wild relative of the domesticated horse. There are a number of other wild equine species, including three species of zebra, and various subspecies of the African wild ass, onager and kiang.
