Carolene, Zebra Keeper
We are all very excited by the arrival of a little filly Zebra foal. The foal has been named Zahra which means flower in Swahili.
Zahra was born in the early hours of the morning on Saturday 26 September 2009 and was out on exhibit that day, which was a real treat for our visitors.
Zahra is absolutely adorable and has real distinct black and white markings on parts of her body which is a little different, as most foals have a more brown colouration whe they are born and get darker over time. She is quite confident for her age and loves to gallop out of the night yard with the herd onto exhibit.
