Shoulder height; 69-94cm Mass; 32-64kg Gestation; About 200 days.
An attractive shy antelope inhabiting forest, reverine and dense bush. Widely distributed, it is primarily nocturnal and can be seen in the early morning and late evening.
The senses are well developed; it is swift and jumps well.
When wounded it becomes extremely aggressive. The voice is a loud, sharp bark.
Bushbuck is preyed on by leopard, wild dogs in the Okavango Delta, pythons lurking in the riverine vegetation.
The Chobe bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus ornatus) is a subspecies found in the Chobe National Park, Botswana.
It is more distinctly marked and has a long bushy tail.
Bushbuck is often found in the company of baboons.

I was born and still live in Africa.
Live a life close to nature, where I get the inspiration to do what I love most…., “Photography”.
Where I live and what I do is my destiny. I am grateful for the privilege
