Jungle Jim's Animal Portraits: Chillin' with a Bontebok

It must be a Bontebok kind of day for our correspondents in the field.  Safari Mike has a new article today about them and even Jungle Jim has sent us in the gorgeous portrait of a bontebok relaxing in the Florida sun like so many Disney guests.

Bonteboks are a great example of what zoos, parks and conservation organizations can do, but also of what humans can do.  Thanks to humans, these incredible animals are still walking the earth.  But also thanks to humans, they are extinct in the wild as overhunting decimated the population.  Now they exist only in parks and zoos.  Click here to read Safari Mike's article and learn about the bontebok.
