Greater Kudu

The greater kudu (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 and hunting.


They are a prized trophy head mainly because of their large horns with two and a half twists, which, were they to be straightened, would reach an average length of 120 cm (47 in), with the record being 187.64 cm (73.87 in).
