TAIPING, Nov 29 (Bernama) -- Taiping Zoo & Night Safari created another history today when its zebra gave birth to a second foal within one year.

The zoo's director Dr Kevin Lazarus said the foal was born between 3 am and 4 am this morning and would become the latest attraction in the country's oldest zoo which was opened in 1961.

"With the new birth, the zoo now has two zebra foals and a set of parents,” he said when contacted here today.

 On Nov 11 last year, the zoo's female zebra from South Africa gave birth to a filly after the Taiping & Night Safari Zoo borrowed a male zebra from the National Zoo for breeding purposes.
