     Who knew that hoofed animals in the Zoo's Savannah exhibit could cause such a stir? This mixture of unique animals can stretch to the sky or dig up the ground, and many are endangered. The Zoo's collection includes the critically endangered Grevy's zebra; Grant's Zebra; a herd of majestic giraffes; ostriches; Grant's gazelle;  Asian deer species, including the Pere David, which is extinct in the wild; and the newly discovered okapi, located in only one forest in the world--the Ituri in the Congo. The exhibit also includes some African carnivore, such as the wild dog, cheetah, hyena and bat-eared fox.
