Zoo visitors get first view of new zebra foals

Apr 14, 2011

Spring marks a lot of firsts in the city of St. Louis - the first pitch, the first Ted Drewes concrete, the first of the daffodils along area highways.

There's a special "first" this year for visitors to the St. Louis Zoo - a chance to see two new Grevy's zebra foals as they venture outside for the first time after their births.

Asante was born in November, and his half-sister Zuri arrived in January. Now that the weather has warmed up, Zuri and Asante are outside with the rest of the herd.
