Ungulate mammals

Endemic to West Africa, the unique and highly threatened Pygmy hippopotamus (Choeropsis liberiensis), now found only in the most remote and intact forests.
Strictly confined to the west of the Sassandra River, the Jentink’s duiker (Cephalophus jentinki) is emblematic of the Taï Grebo-Krhan Sapo Landscape. A keystone species, the Forest elephant (Loxodonta cyclotis) is dependent on the extent of the protected areas for its conservation and is instrumental in dispersing many tree species.
