Stockily built, with short legs. Greyish brown, with a white collar high on the throat, white eybrow stripes, and a distinctive white 'lavatory seat' ring on the rump. Horns are in males only; long and spreading sideways, then slightly inwards with a smooth forward curve.(Smithers' mammals of southern africa a field guide. fourth edition)

Notes:

I saw many hiding in the shrubs and bushes, finally I found a family in the open grassland.
