The foal and mom are currently spending quality time together, but visitors can score a sight of the baby zebra and mother from their cars in the Hwange section of the safari.

According to the news release, Lion Country Safari is home to the largest herd of zebra on record in the United States with nearly 60 zebra under its care.

The three species of zebra include the Plains, Mountain, and Grevy’s. Although, the Plains zebra is the most abundant, all three species are in peril due mostly to poaching and habitat loss.

“Lion Country Safari is Florida’s largest drive-through safari and is home to over 900 animals, including some of the world’s iconic species roaming wide-open natural habitats in large herds,” the news release stated.
