Topi

Topi image. This antelope resembles a smaller, darker Hartebeest without elongated forehead. It has strongly ridged horns, a tan to reddish brown coat and purple blotches on the upper limbs. It favors medium-length grasslands, being a selective grazer, harvesting only the greenest tenderest growth. Topis are active day and night, resting about midday. They form small herds controlled by a territorial bull, young bulls forming bachelor groups.
