1. This is Mdogo and he was born on August 21, 2013.
2. He is a Bongo which is the largest, arguably most beautiful antelope found in equatorial Africa.
Unfortunately, Bongos are listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
3. Thanks to Zoo New England’s participation in the “Bongo Species Survival Plan”, this species has continued on.
4. So congrats to Mdogo and his proud mama, Isabel! You two look gorgeous!
