The Nyala (Tragelaphus angasii) is a Southern African antelope. It is a spiral-horned dense-forest antelope that is uncomfortable in open spaces and is most often seen at water holes. The male stands up to 110 cm (3.5 feet), the female is up to 90 cm (3 feet) tall. Nyalas live alone or in small family groups of up to 10 individuals.
