New Zoo Residents

Posted: Updated:

There's a new addition to the Roosevelt Park Zoo family.

3 Japanese Serows have found a new home in the Magic City.

The animals are small herbivores who usually seek a mountains habitat.

They are also a very rare exhibit.

(Allison Suda, Zoo Employee) "Only 5 zoos in the nation currently have them. There was six and now there are only 5 institutions that have them. So we are very glad to have such a rare species. We do have three. We got a breeding pair, a male and a female, and they had an offspring in May."

The Serows are a part of the petting zoo, and for some pocket change you can feed Mom, Dad and their little baby.
