Riverside Discovery Center's baby zebra named

Posted: Updated:
The popular Disney movie 'Frozen' has inspired the name of the Riverside Discovery Center's newest resident.

The unnamed baby zebra born last month will now be known as 'Olaf'.

Zoo visitors voted on the name this past weekend, and 'Olaf' beat out five other name submissions, including Jombe, Zach, Zeldago, Zephyr, and Zuri. 

Anne James, Riverside Discovery Center Executive Director, says hundreds of people came out over the weekend to pick Olaf's new name.

Baby Olaf was born on May 23, 2014, and James says he's has been quite active in his first month of life.
 
"He's doing great, he's learning to run and frolic around the exhibit without mom right beside him, and he and the family unit has come a long really well they're getting along great. She's doing great for a first time mother, and we're very delighted, just delighted to have him here."
 
The winning name 'Olaf' was submitted by Marje Colgrove Holliday.
