What's a bongo?Ah... the question of the day. Penelope over there on the right is a bongo! (Could they have thought of a cuter name!? Awww.)
Bongos are apparently a type of antelope native to Kenya and Western Africa. They're listed as endangered, so Penelope's birth is big news! She's three weeks old in this picture.
P.S. I've just added "Bongo" to my birthday wish list (April 30, so you know what day to send me a bongo to love and hug and call my very own).
