Como Zoo Welcomes 2nd Baby Zebra In Last 2 Months

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Como Zoo welcomed another zebra into its herd overnight Friday.

Thelma, one of the zoo’s zebras, gave birth sometime Friday night or early Saturday morning.

Zookeepers found the foal Saturday morning. The newborn’s gender has not been determined.

Thelma and the baby are both doing well. This is the second baby zebra born in as many months at Como Zoo. Two-month-old Savanna was born in early July.

Savanna and the newborn share a father named Ulysses. The newborn is Thelma’s second offspring.

You can see Thelma, the newborn and the rest of the herd in the outdoor zebra exhibit from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
