The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
The keepers need to ensure the antelope get the grains they need for a healthy diet. To keep the rhinos from muscling in on all of the grain, the Zoo’s exhibit design team worked with keepers to create feeders the rhinos could not get their head in. These feeders are designed to blend into the habitat and resemble termite mounds found in African grasslands.
This species is cooperatively managed as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan program program. This program is responsible for developing a Breeding and Transfer Plan for each species in the program.
