I didn't realize that they were extinct, but have been brought back and are, even now, on the endangered list.
So good to see a youngster after finding this out.

David,
they were extinct in the wild between 1969-2008.
Fortunately before that some Przewalski's horses had been taken for zoos and collectors.
Not sure of numbers that have been re-introduced into national parks in Mongolia and China.
But its believed that the remaining numbers in the world stem from about 12 wild Przewalski's horses.
As you say its good to see a youngster making itself into the world.
Although I don't agree per se with zoos, Marwell Wildlife Park near Winchester does a fantastic job.
