ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - You now have the chance to see a baby zebra at the St. Louis Zoo!

A male Grevy zebra foal was born at the zoo July 19. Colton weighed 83 pounds at birth. His parents are 15-year-old mother Tiombe and 9-year-old father Dewy.

Visitors can see the baby and his mother at the Red Rocks area of the zoo.  

Curator of Mammals and Elephants Martha Fischer says this is the ninth birth of a Grevy zebra foal in 10 years at the St. Louis Zoo as part of the Species Survival Plan for the endangered species.
