Girl gets Zebra for birthday

Calif. - Children ask for many crazy things for their birthday.  They may ask for a puppy, a cat, or a pony.  But a Zebra?  That became a reality for a 10-year-old California girl.

Brettany Lawton's new pet is indeed a Zebra.

She says she was speechless for about five minutes when she saw what her dad bought her.

It lives with a donkey to keep calm, and dad thinks this out-of-the-box present comes with a life lesson.  "It teaches her some responsibility too," he says.  "I want her to come out and do something.  Water, give him water and food everyday."

Brettany doesn't want to stop there, she also asked dad for a giraffe and a panda.
