White-bearded Gnus (Connochaetes taurinus albojubatus) among the daisies. One of my favourite antelopes.

      Never new chester kept these!
    • bongorob
      They had them between 1951 and 1994. Just visible in the background is the old cat house.
    • Cat-Man
      why did the et rid of them
    • bongorob
      Because they are not an endangered species. Who knows, they may return in the super zoo African savannah project. I hope so, I quite like them.

      Would this be the current Vicuna & Rhea paddock then. I always assumed this was part of the Zebra/Oryx paddocks until Rob pointed the cat house out.
    • bongorob
      It is where the vicuna and rhea are kept now.
