Ellen Trout Zoo To Display Rare Baby Antelope [PHOTO]

On November 23, 2011, a rare antelope, the Bay Duiker, was born at Ellen Trout Zoo.  Bay duikers are a small antelope normally seen in forests of Africa.  This baby boy weighed less than 3.5 pounds when born.  Duikers are nocturnal – going out at night to forage.  Unlike deer, duikers are omnivorous and enjoy various plants, insects and birds to eat.

There are currently only two zoos in the United States that hold Bay Duikers – Lowry Park (Tampa, FL) and the Ellen Trout Zoo in Lufkin, Texas.  Counting this newest baby, there are only eight animals in this country.  Populations are declining in the wild but are not currently endangered.

This new baby will be on exhibit with his parents in the Africa area of the Zoo.
