Zoo Atlanta's bongo calf is appropriately named (because I want to beat it with my hands)

Zoo Atlanta's one-month old baby eastern bongo — that's an antelope, folks — is FINALLY entering its exhibit today. Look how jointy his leggies are!

Zoo-types say the eastern bongo is one of the rarest and most endangered species at Zoo Atlanta, because horrible assholes poach and hunt them for "bushmeat" in the wild. They estimate there are only, like, 500 left in their native Africa.

Speaking of endangered bongos, the obvious association here is the classic Bongo jean, an element of my middle school costume of choice (along with an oversized Yaga T-shirt and low-top Chuck Taylors). There are also only 500 of these left in the wild.
