Be sure to look for all of the moms and their babies! Don't miss our baby Hartmann's mountain zebra and yellow-billed stork chick, both born in April. And say hello to moms like Kiki, the western lowland gorilla, and Amari, the Masai giraffe. 

Stone Zoo

Stop by Windows to the Wild to say hi to two moms who gave birth recently: Prickles, a prehensile-tailed porcupine, gave birth in February, and Lunesta, a Linne’s two-toed sloth, gave birth in March!
