Zoo staff videotaped the whole situation. It was a unique chance to see something so pure and natural up close, it was something that usually only happened in nature.
The baby zebra lay in the sand for a few seconds, before hopping up on all fours and getting up. This process of rising is a natural instinct of baby zebras to obtain breast milk. After a few moments, La Nina stood up and began to lick the baby. But this colt had other ideas in mind. All the dust, dirt and sand made her want to take a quick bath.
