Hooray, a sable antelope has been born at Beekse Bergen in The Netherlands!
Roel’s calf saw the light of day for the first time on September 3. Roel had to wait a while — sable antelopes’ gestation is about as long as it is in humans.
In the wild, the calf remains hidden immediately after birth until it is large enough to keep up with the herd. This period lasts about ten days.
