Animal keepers at Marwell Zoo have announced the arrival of a female Hartmann’s zebra - the first for 16 years. This stripy long legged foal is now a week old and is an important animal for the future of the species.

The playful youngster was born overnight on Tuesday September 24 to first time parents Libra (Mum) and Gounzo (Dad). Keepers have named the little foal Luna, which follows a 'space' theme for Hoofstock baby names this year.
