Zebraduiker in the roundhouse

This was the last zebraduiker, born in 1985. Because it was impossible to get a male for this female, they send it to L.A in 1988. Frankfurt was the only zoo in europe who has kept this species after the second world war. There was just one another zoo in europe with zebraduikers, this was the old Hamburg Zoo, which was closed in 1931. This zoo imported two zebraduikers in 1903 ( the first zebraduikers in a zoo ), but both animals died the same year.

      Excellent photo, Zebraduiker, I think that zoos should get more rare antelope in captivity.

      I would like to see more duikers, giant sable and moutain nyalas, beira and dibatag, and,and,and....It's just a dream, most german zoos have only a few common antelope species in the collections and give up antelopes for other species, Stuttgart for example. They start construction of a new ape house in a few months, and what has to go for it ? Antelopes....
