They may be endangered in the wild, but they are thriving at Deer Forest Exotic Animal Sanctuary.

Over the weekend, a pair of Indian wild asses became parents.

Baby Gracie is healthy and resting with her mother. They will be available to view Memorial Day weekend as long as the veterinarian thinks they're ready.

The oddly-named subspecies, native to southern Asia, was classified as highly endangered in 1960.

According to Deer Forest, there are fewer than 2,000 of these animals left in the wild. In the United States, we have fewer than 100 in captivity.

Deer Forest is open on weekends until Memorial Day, and then seven days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
