About Hoofed Run

This exhibit is divided into two areas within the Zoo: west and east. At west Hoofed Run, you will see several species of African animals including warthogs, okapi, nyala, and even marabou storks to keep the hoofed animals company. If you’ve never seen an okapi, make it a “must see” when you visit – it’s a relative of the giraffe, but you might think it’s closer to a zebra when you see it! Over on east Hoofed Run, bongo, yellow-backed duikers, capybara, anteaters and tapirs make up a large part of this cast of characters. Ground hornbills and rheas also make their home on east Hoofed Run, keeping life interesting for the hoofed animals they live with.

Did You Know?

Even though they may appear fierce and aggressive, warthogs prefer to run away when threatened.
