Now that is a cool combination!
It's a brilliant exhibit - simple yet effective with a nice contrast between the two species.
I wonder how many people think the Warthog is a proud mother with her babies though!!!
If we all set aside our accumulated knowledge of animals (and maybe a bit of the common sense as well and think for a moment like regular visitors, wouldn't you think that? Frankly I do!
There is a sign outside the okapi/blue duiker paddock in Antwerp which says "The blue duiker is NOT a baby okapi", presumably answering an often asked question.
many years ago at a certain New Zealand zoo, the educator (!) ran excitedly to tell the animal staff that the blue-tongue skinks had had babies........
...they were pinky mice put into the terrarium for the lizards' food!
I think we will need one of those signs outside the Chester Okapi exhibit now!
Ive heard it said whilst standing at the exhibit actually!
And you probably will be hearing that many more times to come.
BTW this is a curious combination.
It was just this particular shot that caused me to make that remark- here the warthog does look as if she's 'tending her young....'
