New antelope on exhibit at the NEW Zoo in Suamico

SUAMICO – The NEW Zoo in Suamico has a new animal – the blue duiker.

It’s the smallest antelope in Africa, and one of the smallest antelopes in the world.

The blue duiker is only about 14 inches tall and weighs about 10 pounds fully grown.

This animal came to the NEW Zoo from a zoo in Kansas City.

It went on exhibit at the zoo on Tuesday.

Duiker is Dutch for “diver.” The animals dive into the underbrush for protection.
