This is just the first of several expected births this spring at the Riverbanks Zoo, including lionesses Lindaloni and Thebisa, and gorilla Kazi. The zoo had previously welcomed a new baby koala to the mix, as well! 

The calf will be out on exhibit once mom and baby have had a chance to bond. Keepers expect that will be soon!
