    The 2013 baby boom at the Fort Worth Zoo continues. The zoo announced Thursday that a male common waterbuck calf was born on Oct. 5.

    Ralph is the zoo's first birth under the Common Waterbuck Species Survival Plan, a breeding program among the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

    The Fort Worth Zoo added common waterbucks to its collection in Oct., 2012.

    The common waterbuck is native to sub-Saharan Africa, according to the zoo.

    Ralph and his parents can be seen on exhibit along the boardwalk across from the zoo’s World of Primates exhibit.
