Antelope tragelaphus eurycerus

Bongos rely heavily on their sense of hearing, rather than sight or smell.  They have large ears which allow them to hear approaching predators.

Unlike antlers, horns are not shed every year.  Bongos will keep their horns their entire life.

Eastern Bongo Antelope numbers have declined dramatically due to poaching and habitat destruction. Only an estimated 75 – 140 adult Eastern Bongos survive now in the wild.

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world.  The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones.  Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
