Brevard Zoo welcomed a new face on Monday, April 15 when three-year-old klipspringer Deborah gave birth to a calf named Clarice. A neonatal exam revealed that the new arrival (who weighed less than two pounds at birth) is a female and is properly nursing from her mother.

The newborn, who was sired by four-year-old Ajabu, is currently behind the scenes with her mother and will be introduced to Ajabu before transitioning into the public-facing habitat in Expedition Africa.
