GRANT’S ZEBRA FOAL KEEPER NOTES FROM THE WILDLIFE PARK


Over the past six months, we have had a variety of babies born at the Lake District Wildlife Park. Recent arrivals during spring have included: Tamworth piglets, Soay lambs and Belted Galloway calves. However, recently one of our arrivals was a more exotic species – a Grant’s Zebra foal.


Just over a month ago, a brown and white leggy foal was born by Zara one of our female Grant’s Zebras. It is not well-known, that when a zebra foal is born, that they are brown and white, getting gradually darker as they get older. Zebras have black skin. So essentially Zebras are black with white stripes rather than white with black stripes!


The Grant’s Zebra, Equus quagga boehmi is one of the six subspecies of the Plains Zebra. Grant’s Zebras live on wide open plains and inhabit the grasslands and savannahs of eastern and southern Africa. Zebra foals are quite remarkable in that they can be standing within 20 minutes of being born and are able to run within an hour. In the wild, this is essential if they need to run with the herd to escape predators, such as Lions, Cheetahs, Hyenas and Painted Dogs.


At the Lake District Wildlife Park, the Grant’s Zebras have a large paddock to run around in and can often be seen grazing from a specially made viewing platform – the Zebra jeep! Our new foal appears to be settling in well. However, she does not yet have a name. We will be running a competition to name her, so if you have any

suggestions keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details. The rest of our small herd are called: Zena, Zara and Daan. Our new foal is growing fast, so if you do want to see her, we suggest you pop down to visit us sooner rather than later!
