A zebra foal was born at Taronga Western Plains Zoo on April 3rd 2022. The adorable foal joins the herd ahead of the school holidays. Keepers were delighted to find the foal which had been born overnight to mother Kijani. By the time they arrived it was up and about.
Guests visiting the zoo this school holidays will not only meet the zebra foal but also a quokka joey and a 5 month old greater one horned rhinoceros calf.
Keeper Anthony Dorian said: “Within an hour of being born, the little foal was up and active, immediately imprinting onto its mother. Kijani and the foal are doing well and the little filly is finding its legs.
”Guests can expect to see the little foal suckling from mum, practicing its running and jumping and having many well-earned naps in the beautiful Dubbo sunshine.
