BOISE, Idaho -- An eastern Idaho zoo is celebrating the arrival of its newest, youngest animal: A 90-pound zebra foal born last week after spending about 11 months in its mother's womb.
Tautphaus Park Zoo officials in Idaho Falls are calling the striped equine "Kapuki," which means first-born daughter in Swahili.
That's according to the Idaho Falls Post-Register, which reported Friday that the mother zebra is doing great, is calm and rested and has avoided post-partum stress, so far.
Superintendent Beth Rich says Kapuki is Lil Sis's first daughter, but actually her third offspring; Lil Sis's other two babies were males.
The zoo's regular season has wrapped up for the winter.
But Idaho Falls' newest zebra neighbor may be available for viewing at Halloween-related events on Oct. 29, 30 and 31.
