Meet our adorable female zebra foal at Whipsnade, born to mum Henna.
The foal has been named by six-year-old Jake, who was born with an extremely rare heart condition, and has a very special zebra connection. Jake and his family had a long think about all the reasons they are in the position where he is here today, able to name a zebra:
- The hospital staff who have worked so hard to look after Jake
- The technology behind the Berlin Heart, that supported Jake when his own heart was too tired to pump anymore
- The brave and selfless act of Jake's donor and their family
- And this courageous, strong little boy
Well there could only be one name really, couldn’t there?
We’d like you to meet... Hiro.
Thank you Jake for choosing such a perfect name.
