There are so many new residents at the Denver Zoo
on a regular basis that it can be a challenge to keep up. Last month, for instance, we told you about the impending arrival of Billy the elephant
, coming to Denver from Antwerp. Well, Billy is now here, and he's joined by a slew of other newcomers, including a Mongolian horse, a zebra, a hornbill and an adorable snow leopard named Misha, seen here. Look below to check out photos, videos and text from the Denver Zoo
introducing the latest members of the menagerie.
5. Topaz's pride and joy
Guests at Denver Zoo [June 14] were able to see a new set of stripes in the zebra yard. Keepers welcomed the birth of an endangered, female Grevy's (Greh-veez) zebra to mother Topaz.... Topaz and the foal's father, Punda, were paired under recommendation of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) which ensures healthy populations and genetic diversity among zoo animals. Watch a video of the new foal here.
