The Tulsa Zoo announced Tuesday they are debuting new residents of warthogs to the zoo.

The warthog sisters, Asha, Imara, and Zuri arrived last year from the Oakland Zoo, but the zoo staff said they wanted to allow time to introduce them to their new surroundings and to the other species.

“We are pleased to add this unique species to the zoo and the Mary K. Chapman Rhino Reserve allows our guests to experience a re-creation of an African plains habitat,” said Lindsay Hutchison, vice president of community engagement and philanthropy. “Seeing an exhibit where multiple species interact, just like they would in the wild, is the closest many zoo guests will ever come to an African safari. The Tulsa Zoo is here to inspire a passion for wildlife and having world-class animal habitats helps guests connect with our animals.”
