ST. LOUIS — Two Grevy's zebra foals born in recent months are making their public debuts at the St. Louis Zoo.
Zoo officials say that Zuri, a female born in January, and Asante, a male born in November, can now be seen on mild days with their mothers.
The Grevy's zebra is considered very endangered. Their number in the wild has dropped from 15,000 to 2,200 over the past 30 years. The species is believed extinct in Somalia but still exists in northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia.
The Grevy's zebra the largest of all zebras, and its body stripes are the narrowest.
