BROWNSVILLE - The Gladys Porter Zoo announced the first birth of the zoo’s first endangered addax antelope on March 22. The healthy female calf was delivered by zookeepers and veterinary staff and is now under her mother's care. This birth is significant because in their native Africa the population of addaxes is dwindling.
