There's a new baby at Dublin Zoo!

 

This adorable eastern bongo calf was born on January 5th weighing 15kgs.

The calf is a little shy though - and keepers haven't been able to get close enough yet to find out whether it's male or female.

Team leader at Dublin Zoo, Helen Clarke-Bennet said, "The calf has been well-received by its mother and grandmother Kimba has also taken a shine to the family’s latest addition".

These large antelopes can now only be found in one remote area of Kenya and only between 75 and 140 eastern bongos exist in the wild.
