Information about the Eastern Bongo:
The Eastern Bongo is a large herbivore native to the lush rainforests of north-eastern Central Africa. These mammals are the largest of the forest antelopes. An adult Bongo's height is roughly 3.6 to 4.3 feet (1.1 to 1.3 meters) at the shoulder and they are 7.1 to 10.3 feet long (2.15 to 3.15 meters) The females weigh approximately 330–520 pounds (150–235 kilograms), and males are approximately 490–890 pounds (220–405 kilograms) These shy animals are mostly nocturnal, feeding on plants, bark, vines, roots and fruits. Due to habitat loss and illegal poaching their numbers have declined rapidly and are considered extremely rare and are critically endangered. Intense conservations programs are being developed in their native range as well as zoos around the world, but especially in Europe. Years ago people believed that to touch a Bongo would result in spasms like those of an epileptic seizure.
