Your morning adorable: Grant's zebra foal at Rome's Bioparco zoo

The youngest resident of Rome's Bioparco is Primo, a Grant's zebra born at the zoo on Friday.  Like other young zebras, Primo was quick to get up on his feet (even if he was a little wobbly, as evidenced by the additional photos after the jump). 

There are three distinct species of zebra: plains zebras, Grevy's zebras and mountain zebras.  Grant's zebras are one of six subspecies of the plains zebra; they're both the smallest and most common of the six.
