    Bit to Do

    The animals at the Louisville Zoo are crawling out of their warm winter hideouts to welcome the fresh spring air. And this year, some adorable new faces are experiencing the cool springtime breeze for the very first time. Here's a peek at the big curious eyes, the clumsy growing legs and of the tiny precious noses you can fawn over at the Louisville Zoo this season.

    Annette the Hartmann's Mountain Zebra

    Though Annette was born at the zoo last May, she has recently been placed into her exhibit for the first time due to a construction project occurring at the zoo during her birth. Now that the construction has been completed, guests can see adorably clumsy Annette play with her mother, Morena, and her father, Gibbs, at the Africa exhibit daily. 

     

    Lulu the Dromedary Camel

    At just a few weeks old, Lulu was transferred to the Louisville Zoo after her birth at an Indiana farm. Her mother had difficulty nursing, so Lulu is currently being bottle-fed by her caretakers at her new home. She is now four months old and can be seen daily at the Camel Ride exhibit. Though Lulu is not big enough to give rides yet, she is still eager to see everyone who pays her a visit. 

     

    Babs the North Sulawesi Babirusa Piglet

    Tiny Babs was born at the zoo last September and has since been seen at the zoo's Islands exhibit with her mother, Patrice. However, because her species prefers warmer temperatures, she has been temporarily moved indoors to the Islands Dayroom exhibit. Babs and Patrice will remain at this warm indoor location until the warm summer months when they will be moved to an outdoor exhibit once again. 

     

    Baby Western Lowland Gorilla

    The zoo's newest addition was born last month to 27-year-old gorilla, Mia Moja, who tragically passed away after giving birth due to complications. Though Mia Moja is no longer with us, she would be happy to know that her healthy baby is doing just fine under the zoo's care. This baby, who hasn't been named yet, will not be placed into an exhibit until she is a little bit older. However, the zoo promises that news about her name and when you can meet her are coming soon.
