Another bongo born at Zoo Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Matilda, a rare eastern bongo at Zoo Atlanta, has given birth to her second calf in as many years.

The baby was born Dec. 2 and is the second calf for Matilda and her 5-year-old mate Tambo.

Matilda, 5, gave birth to her first calf exactly one year earlier -- on Dec. 2, 2011. That baby, Beauregard, is the first bongo born at the Grant Park zoo.

Zoo Atlanta spokeswoman Keisha Hines said eastern bongos are critically endangered. Experts believe fewer than 500 remain in the wild.
