Bushbuck

Bushbuck image. A medium-sized antelope with large ears and eyes and a rounded back; the hindquarters are more developed than the forequarters. Their coat being brown to chestnut, showing more or less developed stripes and spots. Only males have nearly straight horns with one twist. Eating new grass, but mainly browsing on herbs, shrubby leguminous plants and figs and other fruits, it is a forest edge antelope, leaving cover only for choice food or in groups. Bushbucks are almost invariably found near water. These mainly nocturnal antelope is usually solitary and non-territorial, but each adult has its own home thicket to rest.
