Kudu - East Cape
The kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) is a woodland antelope found throughout eastern and southern Africa. Kudus have a narrow body with long legs, and their coats can range from brown/bluish-grey to reddish-brown. They possess between 4–12 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.
Male kudus tend to be much larger than the females, and vocalize much more, utilizing low grunts, clucks, humming and gasping. The male kudu is strikingly beautiful, with long spiral horns that set him apart from all other of the antelope species.
