The Little Rock Zoo announces the birth of a female yellow-backed duiker calf, the first for the duiker pair at the zoo.

Duikers are a species of antelope native to African forests. The pair in Little Rock arrived lat summer from Cincinnati with hopes for breeding. The shy animals are threatened in the wild, the zoo said, by hunting and habitat destruction.
