Two new moos at the zoo

Cheers to Prospect Park Zoo for welcoming two new miniature zebus to the fold. The toddlers, less than a year old, have taken up residence in the barn area, along with the sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, and geese — and the miniature horses and other domestics are sure to make the cute newcomers feel at home.

Zebus are among the oldest breeds of cattle, and are believed to have originated 6,000 years ago in southern India. The miniatures grow to be about 500 pounds, reaching adulthood between 2 to 3 years.

You can visit the zoo and coo at its latest arrivals every day from 10 am to 5 pm (5:30 pm on weekends).

Prospect Park Zoo [450 Flatbush Ave. in Prospect Park, (718) 399–7339; www.prospectparkzoo.com].
