HOUSTON -- The African Forest, the Houston Zoo’s most ambitious undertaking in its 88-year history, is scheduled to open to the public on December 10. Zoo members can get a sneak preview beginning Dec. 2.

It will vividly recreate an awe-inspiring wilderness habitat featuring chimpanzees, rhinos, giraffes and kudus in an environment reminiscent of the forest landscape of western equatorial Africa. 

Meet the new residents of the African Forest in this slideshow.
