Mountain Zebras Added to Blank Park Zoo’s Menagerie
DES MOINES, Iowa – There are some new, and much-requested, residents at the Blank Park Zoo – but the striped animals aren’t on display yet. Ryan Bickel with the zoo says the addition of two Mountain zebras is recent. The pair, named Duke and Duchess, haven’t been allowed in the outdoor enclosure yet because it’s too soggy. When conditions improve, they’ll share the enclosure with the Watusi cattle and ostriches.
