DENVER – Say hello to the Denver Zoo’s newest resident, Drizzle.

The 4-day-old male Cape buffalo was born this week to mom Rain and dad Zeus (which explains the rain-themed name).

Drizzle joins sister Puddle, 13 months, and half-sister Tamale, 7 months, at the zoo. All three share Zeus as their dad.

The zoo celebrated Drizzle’s birth by posting pictures of the calf on Facebook Wednesday.

Other animals born at the Denver Zoo this year include Dobby the giraffe, Umi the Malayan tapir and Miso-Chi the fishing cat.
