Baby zebra almost drowned and mother’s reaction leaves her speechless
A long pregnancy
Zebras carry their babies for a year before giving birth. In the wild, they eventually separate from the herd and find shelter where they can hide from predators.
But at Bioparc, animals don’t have to worry about predators. For this particular baby, other dangers lurked nearby. Although childbirth is painful for both mother and foal, the baby zebra can stand on all fours immediately. In this case, the foal’s ability to walk seconds after birth and his adventurous spirit almost turned out to be fatal.
