Rare Okapi Birth Footage

By Chester Zoo

Births are always exciting at Chester Zoo but are all the more exciting when we've got a camera handy. The video shows the moment mum Stuma gave birth to a young male we then named Usala.

With only 14 Okapis in UK zoos this birth is valuable for their continued conservation and is a great memory for all of us here.
