New baby zebra born at Riverside Discovery Center Zoo

One KOTA Territory zoo has a new addition to their family.

The Riverside Discovery Center in Scottsbluff welcomed a baby zebra to the world on Friday morning.

The baby boy has not yet been named. His parents Amigo and Zelda were there by his side long after the birth.

Zoo director Peter Halliday says there were no complications and it went as smooth as possible.

“He was already suckling and absolutely fine and running around. You’d think he was a week old. Not like a horse where you can tell when a horse falls when it’s first born, it still looks a little bit shakey. But that thing looked like a miniature adult with fuzz running around. Really cute. So no problems at all,” says Halliday.

To keep the little guy nameless for as little time as possible, RDC will host a "name the baby" zebra contest for him. If you would like to enter a name, submit suggestions to or on their Facebook page.
