This large antelope (weighs up to 240 kg) is found in grassland near woodland and water where it eats grass. Despite its name, waterbuck does not spend much time in the water, but will take refuge there to escape predators. Females gather in herds of up to 70 individuals.

    Great shot. They also taste pretty bad apparently so not many animals will eat them

  • Thanks a lot Chris! I don’t know how they taste, but I know that their main predators are spotted hyena, lion, leopard and wild dog – the last two mainly on young.
