    I believe Zoodoo are expecting their first Zebra foal in the near future the three Adults were part of the shipment of ten imported via the Darling Downs zoo in Queensland from the USA, so a few more fresh genes for the region if all goes well!

    Another baby Zebra foal has been born at ZooDoo from the same mother as their first not sure why the 2rd female has not bred yet but welcome enough from the 3 that were imported animals!

    Zoodoo Zoo has welcomed the birth of a Black-capped Capuchin. This brings their capuchin group to five individuals.

    So this Grant's zebra was a male:

    1.0 Duke (23/03/2019)

    Does anyone know the names/ages of the other zebra in the herd?

    Given the species has an approximately 12 month gestation (and the fact oestrus often occurs about a week postpartum), the mother of this foal/foals could be due to give birth again in the next few weeks. :)

    I hope they do get their other female Zebra to breed since it is a new imported bloodline

    Agreed! I’ve since learnt that their other foal is 0.1 Jupiter (19/02/2018). They’ll need to relocate her soon as she is now two years old. Hopefully a third facility will hold Grant’s zebra.

    I’d love to see them return to Hamilton Zoo (who have just 0.1 Grant’s zebra). Their current stallion has sired a number of foals, so importing a Grant’s stallion might not be out of the question in the future.
