    the blesbok is a subspecies (at Verona there are the blesbok, in the zoom torino site it written that should arrive the "damalisco" (italian word for the family of topi, korrigum, bontebok, blesbok...) and there's a photo of a bontebok/blesbok)

    I was surprised no Prevost squirrel seems to be kept in Italian zoos ! If I'm right feral populations of this species are found on several places in Italie so I had expected some zoo would have them.
