gemsbok

photo taken 1992. According to ISIS there is currently still one gemsbok at Auckland Zoo but I gather that if it is still there then it must be off-display (and it is the only one left in the country)

      I found out a little while ago from another member that the gemsbok listed on ISIS is a ghost entry, and the zoo hasn't had them for a long time. So none left in the country.

      Yes that is right. Auckland Zoo hasn't had Gemsboks since about 1995 or so. There was one female but she died of old age and she was the last one in the country.

      Jeezabel and another female (can't remember name at the moment) moved to Hamilton Zoo, in about 1995 I think, and lived there until the early 2000s.
