An endangered (IUCN) and federally endangered male Jentink’s duiker (Cephalophus jentinki) named ‘Taz’ at the Gladys Porter Zoo. This animal was the last of its species in captivity. It is endangered in the wild, and declining, so it’s highly unlikely that any more will ever be found in the world’s zoos. Taz passed away in 2013 at the age of 17.
