This eager male puku (Kobus vardonii) simply can’t wait for junior to move out! In contrast to the more widespread impala who are similiar in appearance, the puku do not have an established mating season and so females will potentially come into eostrous at any time of year. Notwithstanding juniors presence, this male has no qualms about displaying his amorous intentions in the hope that the female will be receptive.

Although very limited in distribution in Southern Africa, the puku are plentiful in the Luangwa and Zambezi Valleys. With a definite preference for a floodplain environment, they are never found very far from water.
