What a surprising looking animal. As children, we used to trawl through natural history encyclopaedias but we never came across this one. Great shot!

A day at the zoo, can't be much fun for the animals. Never seen a Bongo before. Where do they live normally?

@Stefan: The Bongo's habitat is the dense jungle in Central Western Africa.

I think you made a friend here. It is very beautiful and has very intelligent eyes! I can't help but wondering what is going on in its brain...

Nice photo. Never seen anything like this before.
They would perhaps not managed to live up here in the cold?

I've never seen a Bongo before. I like his/her stripes.
