Abai Has Been Busy

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – A record of five Somali wild ass foals were born between Aug. 19 and Oct. 15 at the Saint Louis Zoo. The births are a first for two of their moms.

The father of all five foals is Abai, who came from the Basel Zoo in 2005. Nine of Abai’s offspring have been born at the St. Louis zoo.

There are currently only 51 Somali wild asses in North America, and 11 of them are at the Saint Louis Zoo.
