Bongo Pattern

Bongo (Tragelaphus eurycerus) photographed on the Kilimanjaro Safari in Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida on Saturday, September 19, 2020.


Bongos evolved striking black and white patterns to help them hide in the dense forests of Africa. The patterns worked so well the species was not discovered until the 1950s. I explore this on my AllEars blog this week at Pattern and Repetition at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
