The Bongos in the Wilhelma seem to be enjoying their enclosure, that was renovated in 2016, very much. Those extremely rare forest antelopes, here in the Stuttgart zoologic-botanic garden, had a baby again this year…just like 2017. Mother Asante gave birth to a calf on March 16th. Daughter Amarie carefully set her hoofs on the outdoor enclosure for the very first time this week. There are only about 100 east African Bongos left in the wild, they exclusively exist in Kenia.

He is enduring the frisky little ones climbing all over him and doesn’t budge when they playfully nibble on his large flappy ears. Visitors can enjoy an entertaining spectacle watching this special breed of hogs, that is easily distinguished by their black torso and the pink head and backside.
