A new Grevy’s zebra foal made her debut recently at the Bronx Zoo. Named Terri, the little foal can be seen at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s African Plains exhibit. Baby zebras are born with brown stripes that darken to black as they mature.
In the wild, Grevy’s zebras are considered endangered by the IUCN Redlist. Their range is limited to parts of Ethiopia and Kenya. Threats include a reduction in water sources, loss of habitat, hunting, and disease.
