On the way to the Small Mammal House, a quick visit with the Przewalski's Horses, Equus ferus przewalskii. Like the North American Bison, the ancient horse--closest living relative to the horses of the Ice Age--once roamed Eastern Europe and Central Asia in great herds. Today it is critically endangered. The zoo is home to a breeding pair. The darker animal is the stallion. The zoo doesn't house many herbivores, no zebra, no giraffe, only a couple of gazelle/antelope species. So the Przewalski's Horse is really its marquis representative of this form of animal life. I happen to think they are also magnificent.
