      Thank you Black duiker.
      The hoofed stock exhibits at Morelia zoo were actually quite good.

      Are the San Diego Wild Animal Park and Zoológico de Morelia the only zoos in the world that have Uganda kob ?
    • carlos77
      Guadalajara zoo breeds this species also. There must be some in europe.

      This does not look like uganda kob to me, but moch more like a lechwe (Lechwe kafuensis/lechwe), because the whole neck is lighter and not just a chin patch as kob should have.

      Now that i think about it these do look more like Lechwe (Kobus leche) then Kob, and @carlos77 are you sure Guadalajara Zoo has Uganda kob (Kobus kob thomasi) because ISIS only lists them at the San Diego Wild Animal Park

      I will check next time i go to Guadalajara or Morelia for the correct latin name to resolve this. Neither Morelia nor Guadalajara list the species on their website. ISIS is very bad on species in mexican zoos..

      Chapultepec zoo recieved a trio of these antelopes from Guadalajara zoo ( which seems to breed them very well) and i was told that they are definitely lechwe. Lintworm was correct.

      About Uganda kobs (Kobus kob thomasi) in the United States, they had them at the Baton Rouge Zoo in the 1980s and at the Oklahoma City Zoo, the ones at the Oklahoma City Zoo lived in the same enclosure as the White eared kobs (Kobus kob leucotis) that they had. The ones currently at the San Diego Wild Animal Park are descended from the ones that the San Diego Zoo had in the 1960s
