Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi


The Blesbok or Blesbuck (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi) is an antelope with a distinctive white face and forehead. Its white face is the origin of its name, because bles is the Afrikaans word for blaze.


The Blesbok is indigenous to South Africa and is found in large numbers in all national parks with open grasslands.
