All newborns can be tiresome, but this little one is keeping the herd at the San Diego zoo on their toes. Tanu was born on January 3 at the historic zoo, and zookeepers say he could grow to be up to 1,000 lbs when fully grown. SOUNDBITE: Sue Evans, Senior keeper at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, saying (English): "He's doing fantastic out here, he's cute, he runs and bucks and plays and is just a joy to watch." Tanu is a Grevy's Zebra, which is listed as an endangered species. They once roamed the grassy savannas of Africa. Competition with livestock over food and water however, has caused the population to dwindle dramatically. Now, the Grevy Zebra is on the endangered species list.
