The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore announced the arrival of a new zebra.

Zoo officials said the 2-year-old plains zebra named Adanna, also known as “Addie,” is joining female zebras Stella and Phoenix in the African Watering Hole section.

“Addie is going to be a fantastic addition to our herd,” said Erin Cantwell, mammal collection and conservation manager. “She is curious, energetic and learns quickly. Addie has already mastered a few training techniques that allow us to care for her on a more individual basis.”

Addie and the other zebra females are being introduced behind the scenes in the barn and outdoor holding area.
