Steenbok image. This small, brick-coloured antelope with large rounded ears and white under parts and under tail has sharp, upstanding horns, only ringed at the base. Dry savanna with woody vegetation as cover forms it habitat, eating foliage of woody plants as well as fruits and tender young grass. Being active day and night, near settlements it is largely nocturnal. Steenbocks are mostly seen solitary, but thought to be monogamous, with couples sharing their territory.
