Skinny Klipspringer

What’s the skinny on the Klipspringers? Well we had a breeding pair of Klipspringers here at Mogale Business Park but sadly the male was killed last year after being hit by a car. Luckily before his sad end, he had managed to impregnate the female Klipspringer and a baby was born in April this year which we called JZ due to a VIP visit the very next day.

Last month new klipspringers arrived but were kept in an enclosed boma for acclimatisation. And now they have been set free into the park. So today I saw them exploring around my office, another male and female. They seem a little skittish still and although slightly bigger than our current female, both look a little skinny, don't you think? What the doctor has ordered is time to adjust and of course some fattening up on lush fodder.
