o, you might ask – what’s a bongo?
Well, a bongo is a type of antelope native to the lowlands and mountain forests of Kenya and western Africa. In the wild, bongos are shy and elusive but very social. In fact, bongos are the only forest antelope to form herds.
The Western or lowland bongo is classified as near threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the IUCN. The Eastern or mountain bongo is classified as endangered.
Penelope and her parents are Eastern bongo and you can see them daily at the bongo exhibit next to our okapi exhibit.
