What’s black, white and adorable all over? Our new Hartmann’s mountain zebra colt! Born July 2 at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, he already is melting our ungulate team’s hearts with his playfulness and curiosity. Get to know him in this Q+A with SCBI animal keepers Morgan Vance and Tara Buk.
What is our zebra colt’s personality like?
Over the past month, we’ve had great fun watching our playful zebra colt explore his surroundings. Much like his dad, 5-year-old Rogan, our colt is a bit goofy. One minute, he will be zooming around his yard, and the next he will be laying down. Because he is getting used to all of the new sights and sounds, he is extremely inquisitive and seems to be fascinated by everything.
