ATLANTA -- Matilda, a 5-year-old eastern bongo at Zoo Atlanta, is pregnant with her third calf.

The pregnancy was confirmed by zoo veterinary officials, who believe Matilda will give birth in March or April.

Matilda and 5-year-old male bongo Tambo already have two offspring -- Beauregard, who was born in 2011, and Betty Jean, born in 2012. Both young bongos live at different zoos.
