Greater kudu -Tragelaphus strepsiceros

The greater kudu is a woodland antelope found throughout eastern and southern Africa.

The greater kudu is one of two species commonly known as kudu, the other being the lesser kudu.

The greater kudu is one of the largest species of antelope. Males weigh 190 to 270 kg, with a maximum of 315 kg and stand up to 160 cm tall at the shoulder. The ears of the greater kudu are large and round. Females weigh 120 to 210 kg and stand as little as 100 cm tall at the shoulder; they are hornless, without a beard or nose markings. The head-and-body length is 185 to 245 cm, to which the tail may add a further 30 to 55 cm.

Greater kudus have a narrow body with long legs and their coats can range from brown/bluish-grey to reddish-brown. They possess between 4 to 12 vertical white stripes along their torso. The head tends to be darker in colour than the rest of the body and exhibits a small white chevron which runs between the eyes.
