Artist's Description

Antelope litter the landscape in Africa but there was something different about this one. We’d been seeing lots of red lechwe (Kobus leche.) But this guy was bigger, darker and he wasn’t really shaped like a lechwe. He was keeping company with a waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus.) Their size and shape matched but the coloring, fur and distinctive markings of the waterbuck weren’t the same at all. Our guide explained that they knew him… he was born of a lechwe mother and waterbuck father so they’ve taken to calling him a “lechebuck.” When he was younger he hung out with his mother’s lechwe herd, but as he matured and grew to be his father’s size he joined a waterbuck bachelor herd where today, he’s just another one of the guys.
