Bulls are often solitary or associate in small groups. Herds are usually led by a cow.
Bulls are aggressive, fighting among themselves during association with cows.

Both sexes have horns. When the females are ready to give birth, like the roan antelope, they leave the herd.
The young remain hidden for the first month.
