Marwell Zoo Is So Excited About Its Newest Addition: A Newborn Przewalski’s Horse Foal

The Przewalski’s horse, also known as takhi, Mongolian wild horses, or Dzungarian horses, is among the critically endangered species on the IUCN red list. They were extinct in the wild from 1969 to 2008. That’s why the birth of any Przewalski’s horse foal is worth celebrating.

Przewalski’s horses are native to central Asia and were last found on the Mongolian steppes of the Gobi Desert. They tend to live in large familial groups and the females give birth to a single foal after 11 to 12 months of pregnancy.
