Zebra unicorn no April Fool's joke, says zoo

A zoo in Adelaide, South Australia, has announced what is either an April Fool's Day joke, or an Easter miracle.

Monarto Zoo says its new arrival looks a lot like a zebra, with a unicorn's horn on its head.

The fact is the animal is a baby zebra, and it does have a tiny growth, says the zoo.

Unfortunately for sceptics, the animal won't be on display for a while yet, as it is nursing.
