Lost World of Tambun welcomes a new addition to its popular petting zoo. It is Zuzu, the zebra foal and it is a male so we call it a colt just like its cousin, the horse.
ZuZu weighed 30kg at birth. He was born on Tuesday, September 11 at around 10.54pm. ZuZu’s proud parents are Zack (father) and Zoey (mother), the first pair of zebras acquired by the park in 2016 from South Africa.
The colt is placed in a special enclosure to keep it away from other occupants namely, the ostrich, camels and a giraffe found within the exhibition area.
A cake-cutting ceremony to officially welcome ZuZu was organised by park staff on Thursday, October 4 in conjunction with World Animal Day, celebrated annually on October 4.
Guests attending the ceremony got to create a do-it-yourself terrarium plants using recycled materials. The objective of the programme was to instil in the participants a go-green spirit in line with sustainable development goals.
