Endangered zebra foals born at Gulf Breeze Zoo

GULF BREEZE, Florida -- The Gulf Breeze Zoo announced that two Grévy's zebra foals were born of different mothers on the same day, Aug. 12, at the facility. 

"We knew both females were due any day, but we couldn't predict that both females would give birth on the same day," said Desiree Hager, assistant curator, in a news release. "Both deliveries were quick and we're excited to report both babies are happy and healthy with their mothers."

Coming from Seattle, Washington, the Gulf Breeze Zoo’s new director Steve Jagielski isn’t quite used to Florida summers.

“I’m learning to tell the difference between two-shirt and three-shirt days,” he said with a laugh.

Jagielski comes to Gulf Breeze with an extensive background, including working at zoos in Nepal, the Bronx and Pennsylvania to name a few.
