Before hitting up Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on Twitter to #congrats, check out The Oklahoma Zoo’s social media feed. The Twitter page for the zoo (@okczoo) has posted several shots of the cutest one-week old zebra ever. #ZebraBaby

What’s cuter than a zebra born with camouflage stripes strutting his stuff? Saving a species.

NewsOK.com reports the male foal was born to Sassy and Ziggy, both Grevy’s zebras, the most endangered of the zebra species. The newspaper reports global population of the Grevy’s declined to 2,800 in 2008 — that’s after estimates of 15,000 in the late 1970s.

With those grim statistics, the 66-pound foal’s birth will bring smiles to animal lovers and non-animal lovers worldwide.

For those who like to watch kitten videos or search the Internet for the latest on Saint West — Kim and Kanye’s new addition — consider switching to zebra baby videos.

KOCO.com posted a video of the little guy running with some serious speed. As of Dec. 10, the video had been shared 979 times on Facebook.
