The PUKU is an antelope which breeds all year round here in south Luangwa. But it is very rare to actual see them giving birth as they usually hide away in tall grass.
On my evening drive we witnessed a mother puku giving birth in the late hours of the afternoon. According to the timing of the pictures, it took 17 minutes from the time the baby to be dropped, then tried to stand up, and finally do it and suckle! We really much enjoyed watching all this, and were very lucky to actually see this.
