Nashville Zoo now has Yellow-Backed Duikers on Exhibit

 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – Guests to Nashville Zoo can now see yellow-backed duikers on exhibit. The two females, named Pearl and Jade, have joined the Zoo’s collection on Bamboo Trail.

“Yellow-backed duikers are small antelopes native to the forests of central and west Africa,” said Lanny Brown, mammal curator. “There are around 60 yellow-backed duikers in North American zoos, so we are excited to give our visitors the chance to learn more about this rare and relatively unknown animal.”

Pearl (3 years old) and her calf Jade (9 months old), come to Nashville from the San Diego Zoo. They weigh around 150 lbs. and are about four feet long. The Zoo hopes to eventually add a male to the collection for breeding.
