      Is this exhibit as big as it looks like?
    • snowleopard
      This exhibit, along with most of the Bronx's African Plains area, was constructed in 1941 and the lion enclosure appears larger in the photo. Still, it is a fair size and actually overlooks an antelope habitat to the left of the lions. If you look carefully to the left of the lioness in the background you can see a species of antelope.

      that species of antelope is Lowland Nyala:)

      How can you tell them apart from lesser kudu as Edinburgh Zoo houses them together so I have a hard time telling the species apart
    • LaughingDove
      Lesser kudu are pretty much grey in colour and the males have curly horns. With lowland nyala, the females are very red in colour and smaller and the males are a very dark brown, almost verging on black and are slightly shaggy.

      Thanks you for helping me. :)

      Also I know the exhibit very well so I know where the two species are
