Dama gazelle born at National Zoo
The National Zoo is welcoming another new resident.
The Dama gazelle was born Wednesday afternoon around 2:30 to mom Adara and dad Raul.
The zoo says a few lucky visitors got to witness the birth, as well as the gazelle's first steps.
Both mom and baby were removed from the exhibit, so they can bond over the next few weeks.
Dama gazelles are a critically endangered species. Fewer than 500 remain in the wild.
