South American paddock

Opposite the spectacled bears is this rhea and guanaco paddock. Bat house and tapir shelter can be seen in the background. Taken in 2005 (prior to this the paddock held a roan antelope.)

      It was a female sable Antelope I think

      I thought it housed 2 male Sables.

      nah, definitely not males, I think it must've been a female sable like Jonathan says, that'd be why I confused it with a Roan.

      It was orignally a group of four or five bachelor male Sable, when this dropped down to a single male through deaths and dispersals the zoo received a female (the last youngster from Paignton, I believe) to pair up. I'm not sure if the last male died or was moved on off the top of my head but the lone female was the last Sable to be held at Chester. (I used to adopt them...)
