Top things to do in Tampa Bay for Sept. 6

 On January 15, a Hartmann?€™s mountain zebra gave birth to her first foal -- and the first of her species at Tampa?€™s Lowry Park Zoo. The yet-to-be-named newborn is the second successful zebra foal born at the Zoo in as many months, following the birth of a female Grevy?€™s zebra foal last November 23 (2015).             ?€œWe are delighted with this successful birth -- a first for Tampa?€™s Lowry Park Zoo. With this foal, the Zoo has now contributed to the managed population of both zebra species in our conservation programs,?€ said Dr. Larry Killmar, Chief Zoological Officer, Senior Vice President, and Zoo Director.
