      Wow, this is nice. San Diego never had more than 3 of these guys when they had them at the zoo. Is this the largest captive herd in the world? Do they reproduce well?

      Can't help with largest herd size (Chester normally has around seven or more) but they certinley seem to do well within Europe

      I do not know if it is the largest captive group, but I would doubt that it is.
