      Saw this ungulate today but not sure what it is not saw it there before it was in the enclosure behind the female cheetah enclosure and was on its own as far as i could see

      It's a lechwe, this paddock did hold an off-show breeding group of philipine spotted deer.

      Thanks, it was on its own so wasnt sure what it was

      And many years before that it housed Kafue Swamps Lechwe, so in effect this specimen has come back home.

      Why has the male been seperated?

      Do they still have phillipine spotted deer? I just read about these in the new book from WAZA, there are none in the U.S., and I would love to see them. I will be at Chester Zoo for one full day this September.

      Yes, there are 0.3 at present and can be seen from the Bat Bridge or the pathway at the south end of Asian Plains enclosure.

      Would you like me to upload a recent pic of them Arizona?
    • Arizona Docent
      Yes, pic would be great, and I will look forward to seeing them.

      They are also kept at Colchester, newquay and West Midlands Safari Park.
