The bouncing baby boy was born Wednesday, September 7 at 3:42 a.m.
Caretakers have have spent the past 20 days caring for him and getting to know him.
Now, they have settled on a name for the Zoo’s latest arrival.
Nzadi (pronounced Na-zadee) means ‘river’ in the Kongo language, a language spoken in the Democratic Republic of the Congo where okapi are found.
Nzadi’s birth marks the seventh okapi born at the OKC Zoo.
He’s the first offspring for the okapi pair, Kayin and Bosomi.
The Oklahoma City Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, at $12 for adults, $9 for children ages 3-11 and seniors ages 65 and over, and free for children under 3.
