      babirusa don't root up the ground the way most pigs do.

      That explains why their exhibit is always grassy.

      Sacramento Zoo keeps RRH's and Bongo mixed, as far as I know.
      Beardsley Zoo's current peccary exhibit is very lush in the summmer. When they get their new exhibit, I'm not quite sure if they'll be sharing it with anteaters, or if they'll be seperated.

      Does it work okay? Is there any grass/undisturbed area left for the Bongo?

      San Diego Safari Park - warthog and bat eared fox.

      Caldwell Zoo - warthog in large field savanna with zebra, impala, ostrich, kudu. (The field is so large that the pigs do NOT destroy the vegetation, so maybe size is the key?).
    There are no comments to display.
