February 1, a new takhi named Bukhara was born at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Australia! She is just starting to eat grass now and then, trying to figure out why the adults keep putting that weird green stuff in their mouths.
Takhi, the world’s last true wild horses, are originally native to steppes in Mongolia, China, and Siberia. Takhi are endangered, but doing well in zoo breeding programs, and a few hundred have been released in the wild in Mongolia. Their numbers are growing.
