Primo Is First in My Book

Buon giorno, Primo! The three-day-old babe is the first of his species to be born at Rome's Bioparco Zoo in decades. (Think you can guess where that name came from?) Although we've oohed and ahhed over a couple Grevy's zebras in the past, this lil one is a Grant's Zebra.

Of the three living subspecies of Plains Zebras — Grant's, Chapman's, and Burchell's — and all other zebra species, this is the most widespread in the wild, but also the smallest at about 660 pounds. Check out some vertical brown stripes on the body, horizontal ones on the legs, and hair sticking straight up as a mane and from large ears.
