Wink news

A new family has joined the Naples Zoo! They announced on Tuesday that Evita, a narrow-horned gazelle, had her first calf on Monday.

A man weighs about 3.5 pounds and is just over a foot tall.

“The calf was tested for newborns by the zoo’s veterinary team and found to be healthy and prosperous,” said the zoo.

The calf has no name yet, but he is on display and guests are welcome to meet him.

The narrow-horned gazelle is part of the Zoo and Aquarium Association’s Species Survival Plan (SSP). The Naples Zoo is an AZA-certified zoo and aquarium that participates to help create endangered and endangered populations.

“New baby mothers and fathers were specially matched by SSPs based on their ancestry, creating the greatest genetic diversity in the population over the next century,” said the zoo.
