About

Chestnut red in color and faintly striped in white, and with spiraled horns, these large forest antelope are among the most beautiful hooved animals. Near-Threatened by poaching and illegal trapping for bush meat and their hides, these iconic forest antelope are nearly gone from their eastern range. You can find the Bongo near the gorillas in the African Forest section of the Zoo.
