CUTENESS ALERT: endangered foal arrives at Denver Zoo
If you're in Denver, Colorado this summer, you'll have the chance to see one of the cutest -- and most endangered -- foals, ever.
is the first Przewalski's Horse to be born at the Denver Zoo in 20 Years
If you're like me, you look at the name of her breed and decide it's too much of a tongue-twister to pronounce.
You might just call her a Mongolian Horse. That's accurate, too, but here's a key to pronunciation:
The little filly was born to mom Yisun, on the morning of May 31.
Do you speak Mongolian? Hope so, since I can't find sensible translations of the names. Sube or Yisun. Perhaps they're just proper names.
Want to enjoy a Sube film? Click here: foal quietly exploring her yard
under the watchful eye of her mother. Sube is a little unsteady on her feet, and when she's afraid she'll fall, she's all about cuddling closer to her mother!
