CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

"Bouncing baby" has a literal meaning at Lincoln Park Zoo this spring. The zoo is celebrating the first birth of a baby this season.

A female klipspringer, which means 'rock jumper' in Afrikaans, was born March 30th. The klipspringer is a small species of African antelope.

The zoo said she's healthy, but that staff is taking care of her because her mother was unable to.

The klipspringer is not on public exhibit yet.

Lincoln Park is part of the klipspringer species survival program.
