In the past several months the Zoo has welcomed a herd of new antelope babies. Three sitatunga calves and one lesser kudu calf have been born behind-the-scenes with two more antelope babies to be delivered any day. What’s behind the sudden baby boom? A lot of planning and hard work. In this episode of Off Exhibit we sit down with Maryland Zoo Mammal Collection and Conservation Manager Carey Ricciardone. Learn more about the newest antelope additions and the effort to breed several antelope species here at the Zoo. Plus, discover what’s next for the breeding program.
