Khao Kheow Open Zoo welcomes new-born zebra


CHONBURI – Khao Kheow Open Zoo has welcomed a new member, a male baby zebra who is doing well.

The foal was borne to eight-year old father, Simok, and three-year-old mother, Som. The newborn zebra, whose birthday is close to the upcoming Buddhist Lent, is under the care of his mother and zoo guardians. He can be seen by zoo patrons at the Africa Savanna zone.

Common zebras can be found in the African Savanna. Their black and white stripes come in unique patterns. They are social animals that live in herds and forage for food with other animals, such as giraffes, antelopes and ostriches. Though zebras’ eyesight is poor, they have very keen senses of smelling and hearing.

Khao Kheow Open Zoo will be displaying Buddha’s relics from Sri Lanka from July 16th -20th on the occasion of the Buddhist Lent.
