There is cause to celebrate at BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo, as officials announced a male nyala was born earlier this month.

It was born to a 3-year-old mother in the Africa loop on April 1.

Officials said the new nyala appears to be progressing normally.

The animals are native to Southeastern Africa, usually found near water, and feed on fruits and grasses.
