Phoenix Zoo’s new Grevy’s zebra gets name

PHOENIX — And he shall be called …

The Phoenix Zoo celebrated the new Grevy’s zebra foal with a naming ceremony Wednesday. His mother chose Bakari.

Or more to the point she liked the treats attached to the name.

Staff set up three bags of goodies each labeled with a baby name.

The other names available were Pembe and Akili. The winning name is Swahili and means “one who will succeed.”
