PEORIA — One of the first animals in the Peoria Zoo's Africa! exhibit died Thanksgiving Day, and a new takin has arrived at the facility.

The zoo's male Grevy's zebra, Hogan, died at age 22, more than twice the median life expectancy for a male of his species in captivity, zoo officials said in a news release Monday.

Hogan was one of the first animals in the Africa! exhibit, which opened in 2008. Lab results to determine the cause of death are pending.

There are only about 2,000 mature Grevy's zebras alive in the wild, and the species is endangered.

Zoo officials also announced that they have a second female takin that arrived on Nov. 14. The new takin — a large, goat-like antelope — comes from the Minnesota Zoo and is named Bing Leng. She will be a companion to the other female takin in residence, Meg, until both are able to socialize with the zoo's resident male, Bert.
