Newborn Zebra

Check out this footage I got of a newborn zebra here in the Mara. It was fun watching it take its first steps (and subsequent spills)!

Looks like the motherly drive to clean the baby is also a good motivator for the kid to walk in order to try and avoid the tongue. Good mom, and great little ambler! =) SO cute. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Dave, did a hyena show up for dinner or is this kid good to go for a while?

@biobabbler: Glad you like it!

@Dee: Not while I was there, but we have been seeing them eating more [baby] zebra these days in general.
