Bohor Reedbuck


The Bohor Reedbuck (Redunca redunca) is an antelope native to central Africa.  This sturdily built antelope has a yellow to grayish-brown coat. Only the males possess horns that measure about 25–35 cm. It prefers grasses and tender reed shoots with high protein and low fiber content. This reedbuck is dependent on water, though green pastures can fulfill its water requirement. The social structure of the Bohor Reedbuck is highly flexible. Large aggregations are observed during the dry season when hundreds of them assemble near a river.
