      Looking for help again to id this Pangani Forest Exploration Trail resident.
    • JaxElephant
      This is definitely a Gerenuk. ;)
    • NigeW
      Thanks JaxElephant. I wish it had stood up while I was there :)

      Great Gerenuk

      What an Amazing animal!
      Can anyone tell us if these are found in any UK collections?
      Thank you
    • Pygathrix
      None in Europe, confined to collections in Middle East and USA. Wouldn't it be great to see them in the UK?
    • Baldur
      I don't think there have been any in Europe in 30 years, since Frankfurt stopped keeping them, or so I think I've read somewhere. Would anyone have further information? I saw my first at the Los Angeles Zoo in 2003.
    • Cat-Man
      i feel so lucky too have seen them, they really are beautiful animals:)

      Wait till you see one truly "stand up" on its two hind legs to feed. That site always thrills me whenever I visit the LA Zoo. Quite a nice enclosure at DAK when I visited in 2001.

      This would be your forth account here, unless I've missed some. First there was Zebraduiker (which you yourself put to sleep) and then Charly (who got banned) followed by Tarsius (most memorable for his love of Knut poetry). And now it is Beaker...

      You're of course welcome back, even if under (at least) your forth username. It's rather that you should realise that you could start up 100 account and still we'd know.
