A cutie patootie zebra filly was born on Saturday at Chester Zoo in England. She is a Grevy’s zebra, an endangered species with fewer than 2,500 left in the wild. 

The as-yet-unnamed darling baby is the first Grevy’s zebra born at the Chester Zoo in 34 years. She is also the first offspring of her parents, Nadine and Mac.

Tim Rowlands, curator of mammals at the zoo, said: “Since our female zebras arrived a few years ago we have worked very hard to breed this highly endangered species and the arrival of this foal is not only a really good achievement for us but good news for the species as a whole.” He went on to share, “She is a lively one but mum Nadine is doing a great job so far, particularly given that it’s her first – she’s certainly earning her parental stripes.”
