Przewalski's horses are the last undomesticated horses left on Earth. Meet Christine, a young filly whose mere existence is a scientific breakthrough for the future of this rare Mongolian species.
Meet Christine, a young Przewalski's horse at Smithsonian's National Zoo who represents hope for an endangered species once extinct in the wild. These Mongolian animals are the only undomesticated horse breed in existence, and Christine, the first to be born from artificial insemination, is a scientific breakthrough in conservation. Join us as caretakers at the National Zoo walk us through her development. Then learn how their work helps strengthen the population of 500 Przewalski's horses currently thriving in their native Mongolian habitat.
