Disney's Animal Kingdom just announced the birth of not one, but two female Grevy's zebras.

The first foul was born on April 26 to a zebra named Laylee and the second was born May 1 to Zuri, said the Official Disney Parks blog.

As of now, both are behind the scenes, nursing with their mothers, but will return to their herd soon on the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail soon.

Grevy's zebras are an endangered species, with roughly 2,500 left in the world, which makes these births a pretty big deal.
