NORFOLK, Virginia — Visitors to the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk can now see a bongo born there earlier this month.
The zoo says Callie was born on Nov. 2. She is the fourth offspring for a female bongo named Juni and the first for A.J., a male that arrived last December from the Jacksonville Zoo in Florida.
Bongos are forest antelopes that live in dense forests in Africa. Fully grown, they weigh 450 to 550 pounds and stand more than 50 inches tall at the shoulder.
