Born With Symmetrical Spiral Horns, The African Antelope Greater Kudu Is At The Center Of Attention

African horned antelopes are majestic. You may spot these stunning animals somewhere on social media. But have you ever seen an African antelope with symmetrical spiral horns? The
Greater Kudu bears these. The unique horns have made a name for themselves.

The twisting horns are definitely the most impressive features of this antelope. They can always make this animal stand out from the crowd. They can form two to two and a half full twists and can stretch up to 47 inches if straightened.

Do you know that male Greater Kudus occasionally fight with their horns to take over dominance in their colony?

This African antelope is endemic to south and east Africa. It prefers living in the woodlands and eats shoots and leaves. Currently, this species can be still found in the wild but more common in reserves, the Kruger National Park, for instance.

Along with the twist horns, this beautiful creature is known for the white stripes on its belly. These stripes help reduce their risks of being spotted by lions, African dogs, and hyenas.

A male Greater Kudu can weigh up to 700 pounds and reach 60 inches tall when grown up.

They live independently most of their life. They only join a herd during the mating season.

Female Greater Kudus, on the contrary, form groups of three to ten with their calves. But they leave the herd when they are ready to give birth. The mothers then place their calves in the bush for 4-5 weeks to keep them safe from predators. But they will return to feed their babies.

The calves then form a group with their mothers in the wild. They continue to be cared for and protected by their mothers until six months old. After that, they live independently.

If you love this beautiful antelope, just share this article with your family and friends.
