AFTER a long wait, the first zebra foal to be born in Queensland has been welcomed on the Darling Downs.

Mum and dad Zara and Zinty welcomed the newborn overnight at the Darling Downs Zoo at Pilton.

The pair were imported from Texas back in 2014, along with eight unrelated zebras, following a six year effort by the zoo.

The zoo reported the youngster was up on its feet soon after birth and was following mum around its enclosure.

With the school holidays in full swing, visitors are welcome to see the whole family between 9am and 4pm daily, with last entries to the zoo at 3.

The whole family is now on view from 9am to 4pm daily. Last entries to the zoo are at 3pm.
