ASHEBORO, N.C. -- The North Carolina Zoo is the largest in the world.

The biggest habitat there is the Watani Grasslands in the Africa section of the Zoo. Guests can watch rhinos, ostriches and several species of antelope run around 40 acres that look like a natural space in Africa.

While many zoos across the United States have antelope, only three facilities -- including the North Carolina Zoo -- have the fringed eared oryx.

In today's Zoo Filez, Shannon Smith shows us how to identify them and why you should check them out on your next visit to the Zoo.
