Racine Zoo welcomes newborn Hartmann's mountain zebra

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Racine Zoo is adding another member to their zoo family! A newborn Hartmann's mountain zebra, born on Dec. 24, will be a joyful addition to the Racine Zoo. 

According to a news release from the Racine Zoo, as the first Hartmann’s mountain zebra born at the zoo, the foal is an important addition to the population. Born to mother Promise and father Obi, the new foal was born as a recommendation of the Hartmann’s mountain zebra Species Survival Plan, and zoo staff were in close communication with staff at both San Diego Zoo and Disney’s Animal Kingdom throughout Promise’s pregnancy and the foal’s first few weeks.

The new zebra needs a name! Bid on naming the baby in a silent auction. Auction is open now through Thursday, Jan. 21, 2021 at 7:30pm CST. Racine Zoo will be hosting a livestream January 21 from 7pm to 7:30pm to talk all about the baby. The winner will be announced at the end of the stream.

Viewers can tune in on the Racine Zoo’s website.

Welcome, little guy!
