Baby zebra is latest sensation at the Toronto Zoo

What's black and white and absolutely adorable? If you're thinking of the Toronto Zoo's baby pandas, you wouldn't be wrong, but our city now has another itty bitty animal to fawn over.

Meet Rey, the zoo's baby zebra. She was born on July 26 and like her Star Wars namesake, she already looks fierce and independent.

Rey and her mom Tori are Grevy zebras. As CBC News reports, there are only about 2,000 Grevy zebras left in the wild - the species is listed as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species.

Along with Rey, the Toronto Zoo has received a lot of attention for its baby animals lately. The pandas caused an international pandemonium when they appeared in a photo with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. And now you can watch the giant pandas all day thanks to the new Panda Cam.
