Poll:
Which name would you choose for the baby zebra?

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) --  Brooke Katz takes you inside the Louisville Zoo to take a closer look at the zebra exhibit, where a foal was born earlier this year.

 

After voting from zoo guests, the zebra foal's name was chosen to be Ziva! Ziva and his father, Gibbs, go well together, as both names come from the popular CBS show NCIS.

Ziva is the first Hartmann’s mountain zebra foal to be born at the Zoo in 13 years. Born to Morena and Gibbs, the 72 lb. foal was birthed on January 18, 2013 at 2:45 a.m. She is on exhibit daily weather-permitting.
