CHICAGO — A baby Grevy’s zebra was born over the June 18 weekend at Lincoln Park Zoo, just in time for sire Webster to celebrate his first Father’s Day.
This is the first offspring for 5-year-old sire Webster, and the third foal for 9-year-old Adia, according to the zoo. Her most recent offspring, Kito, lives in the yard next door.
Grevy’s zebras don’t live in permanent herds but instead gather in temporary groups, according to the zoo. Foals can stand within minutes of birth and run short distances within an hour.
