Alcelaphus buselaphus cokii
A tall, tan or reddish antelope with bracket-shaped horns, elongated head, high shoulders and a sloping back. It is lion-toned with lighter rump and nearly no dark markings. Prefering medium-length grassland, these animals have to drink when the grass is dry; they are among the purest grazers. Coke´s Hartebeest are mostly active early and late in day, but also by night. Harem herds occupy the most suitable places, but bachelor groups are also a common sight.
