    They currently have 2 mares (Shiloh and Itika) both had foals with the previous stalion (Monty) who died in November 2007.

    Shiloh's foal (Bacari) was born on new years eve 2005. He was later found to be deaf.

    Itika also had a male foal on 15th December 2007. She came to Auckland from Monarto Zoo in South Australia.

    I think both the foals are still at Auckland Zoo but can't confirm this.

    Both foals are still at Auckland Zoo. They now have a new breeding stallion called Machano from Hamilton Zoo.

    The two male foals have both moved on though I think they were still there at the time of Nisha's comment.

    Itika's foal's name is Carlo and he and Bakari left many months ago now. That means there are currently 3 zebras at Auckland whom I have personaly witnessed mating so heres hoping there will be new foals soon!

    Shiloh's mother was named Sheena, she was born in 1979 at Auckland Zoo. There were many other foals born around this time but and I think many were sent to the Hamilton, Wellington and Orana Park Zoo's.

    I know a zebra called Maria at Franklin Zoo but I don't know if that is the same one though.
