Doppler, the Baby Eland Born at DAK, Debuts on Kilimanjaro Safaris

Doppler, the baby eland born during Hurricane Dorian, has mad his debut on the Kilimanjaro Safaris.Mom and baby spent the morning exploring and playing on the savanna, and the young calf was eager to meet some of his new. neighbors. Since his birth, Doppler has been bonding with his mom, Clover, in a backstage habitat and he’s been growing quickly.

While he will continue to nurse for the next couple of months, Doppler has developed quite an appetite for some of his favorite new foods – lettuce, carrots and sweet potatoes. When he’s fully grown, Doppler will stand about 8-feet-tall and his legs will be powerful enough for him to jump that high too.

Doppler was born as part of a species survival plan in partnership with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
