Eastern Bongo in Australian Zoos I’m wanting to know more about Eastern bongo held in Australian zoos. If anyone could help with any of the five questions below, that’d be awesome. I’m interested to hear about the history of any bongos, but it seems logical to start with Djembe and her offspring: Djembe: 0.1 Djembe born 15/09/2008 at Taronga Western Plains Zoo (Unknown x Nambala) 1. Who was the sire of Djembe? Djembe has given birth to the following calves: 0.1 Kiazi born 02/04/2012 at Taronga Zoo (Ekundu x Djembe) > Sent to Singapore Zoo 2014 1.0 Tambo born 29/11/2013 at Taronga Zoo (Ekundu x Djembe) 1.0 Mshindi born 08/02/2015 at Taronga Zoo (Ekundu x Djembe) 1.0 Kamau born 05/09/2018 at Taronga Western Plains Zoo (Kulungu x Djembe) > Still at TWPZ 1.0 Jabali born 01/12/2019 at Taronga Western Plains Zoo (Kulungu x Djembe) > Died 2020 Mshindi was reported to be Djembe’s third calf; and Kamau and Jabali her fifth and sixth. What was the date of birth of Djembe’s fourth calf? I’m assuming it was a stillbirth/non surviving calf in either 2016 or 2017. 2. What happened to Tambo and Mshindi? What zoos did they go to and when? Additional Questions: It was noted on ZooChat that Nambala was born 1995 at San Diego Zoo and died 17/07/2012. Many people have said she was the mother of a bongo named Shani. The only reference I can find to Shani is this article: Bongo playing shy for cameras It notes Shani arrived in 1996 from San Diego Zoo and that she gave birth to: 0.1 Bintu born 00/08/2004 Taronga Western Plains Zoo 1.0 Ekundu born 00/12/2005 at Taronga Western Plains Zoo 3. If Nambala was born 1995 and this article is accurate, Nambala couldn’t have Shani’s dam. Can someone confirm? 4. What happened to Bintu? Did she die or was she exported? Taronga Western Plains Zoo have a female named Maisha from Singapore Zoo. From this article, it appears she was born late 2013: Meet our newest visitor, Maisha the Bongo 5. Does anyone know Maisha’s DOB?
