The greater kudu bull (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) is a woodland antelope found throughout eastern and southern Africa. Despite occupying such widespread territory, they are sparsely populated in most areas, due to a declining habitat, deforestation.
Two subspecies of Kudus live in Sub Saharan Africa, the greater Kudu live in wooded areas and bushland while the lesser Kudu are primarily found in arid savanna areas. Both subspecies have stripes and spots on their bodies as well as white hair between their eyes. The greater Kudu can weigh between 420 to 600 pounds and have very long horns that can grow as long as 72 inches. Learn more about this near threatened antelope!! #AWFfacts
