The Budapest Zoo is engaged in nurturing zebras since 1894.
The baby zebra is the first new-born of the year 2015 in the Budapest Zoo. The striped newcomer was born at the early morning of Sunday. Since the mother, Romy, fears for her cub very much, they still get full rest. Therefore the audience will have the chance to see them only a few days later.
The Budapest Zoo is engaged in nurturing zebras since 1894, though over the passed 120 years there had been times when no so-called ‘tiger-horses’ were kept in the zoo. During the last few years there was no growth in their population, since the breeders, which arrived to the Zoo in 2010 and 2012, have had to reach reproductive age. And thus ten years have passed in all since the last newcomer was born.
