Zebra Foal: Boy or Girl? The Great Debate
At Timbavati Wildlife Park We had the pleasure of having a new zebra foal named Firecracker born in the park on the 4th of July! The burning question that everyone asks is what gender is the new zebra foal. The answer is!!!!!!!!! We don’t know lol and there’s a reason why!
Mother Knows Best
When a baby zebra is born there is a nursing and bonding period that the new foal shares with its parents. During this period as long as the foal is healthy, there’s a hands off approach to the newborn.
It’ll take a little bit yet to let that process develop naturally. Once they’re comfortable and baby is cruising along good we will give the foal the full evaluation and report his/her gender to you. In the meantime what do you guys think, is it a boy or a girl?
