The Taronga Zoo in Sydney said the calf, born Feb. 8 to mother Djembe and father Ekundu, was given time to bond with its mother before going on display to the public this week.

"Djembe is a fantastic, protective mother and cleaned the calf as soon as it was born. The calf has already learnt to follow its mother around and was very curious and energetic when exploring its exhibit for the first time," said Tracy Roberts, an ungulate keeper at the zoo.
