The foal was born at Marwell Zoo near Winchester in Hampshire, England, British news agency SWNS reports. It is considered "very strong" and its parents, Jahzahra and Lars, are also doing well, according to specialists at the zoo.
“The birth of this foal is an extremely important addition to the zoo," Marwell Wildlife animal collection manager Ian Goodwin said.

The newborn African wild donkey, which was born on Aug. 5, does not have a name yet. Zookeepers are presently unsure if it is a male or female.
In addition to the African wild donkey, the zoo also saw the births of two Hartmann’s mountain zebra foals on Aug. 6 and 11, respectively.
