Sharing Sad News
It is with heavy hearts, that we share some sad new. We’ve had to say “goodbye” to Nazim, the magnificent Grevy’s zebra that was a big part of the Caldwell Zoo family. Nazim passed away on Christmas Day after battling a severe intestinal ailment. He joined us in 2019 when he came from Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. Although Nazim joined our zoo family relatively recently, it feels like he’s been with us for a long, long time. Nazim was 23 years old and the father of Amali, who was born here at the Caldwell Zoo in 2020. He absolutely loved fresh produce and his favorite enrichment item was a huge rubber ball that he’d roll back and forth. This clever and beautiful zebra has made such an impact on the zoo and the entire Tyler community. We will miss his vibrant spirit and lively calls.
