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.
