Big photos, videos below.
There are so many new residents at the Denver Zoo on a regular basis that it can be a challenge to keep up. Last month, for instance, we told you about the impending arrival of Billy the elephant, coming to Denver from Antwerp. Well, Billy is now here, and he's joined by a slew of other newcomers, including a Mongolian horse, a zebra, a hornbill and an adorable snow leopard named Misha, seen here. Look below to check out photos, videos and text from the Denver Zoo introducing the latest members of the menagerie.

Guests at Denver Zoo [June 14] were able to see a new set of stripes in the zebra yard. Keepers welcomed the birth of an endangered, female Grevy's (Greh-veez) zebra to mother Topaz.... Topaz and the foal's father, Punda, were paired under recommendation of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) which ensures healthy populations and genetic diversity among zoo animals. Watch a video of the new foal here.

I read that as 'in prison yet' and was surprised at Westword's stance. Then I laughed.

Snow leopards have always been my favorite Zoo animal. A nice looking cat.

I'd like to see all these animals, but the snow leopard cub, although it is young enough to be cute, looks purely wild and fierce to me.

I want to see the lion cubs from Qatar as well.
