Blue Wildebeest

Connochaetes taurinus


Probably the most conspicuous feature of the Blue Wildebeest are the large horns shaped like parentheses, extending outward to the side and then curving up and inward. In the male the horns can attain a total span of almost 90 cm, while the female's horn width is about half the size of the male.


Open Savannah. The serengeti (where this was spotted) have over 1million Blue Wildebeest.
