A new members steps into the Zoological Gardens at Dehiwala.
Greater Kudu is a woodland antelope which is found throughout the Eastern and Southern Africa. Despite occupying such widespread territory, they are sparsely populated in most areas, due to a declining habit, deforestation and hunting. It is for the first time that a Greater Kudu was born at the zoo. The Zoological Gardens received the animals under an exchange programme mooted 20 years ago.
