The Greater Kudu is a woodland antelope found throughout eastern and southern Africa. Despite occupying such widespread territory,
they are sparsely populated in most areas, due to a declining habitat, deforestation and poaching. The greater kudu is one of two species
commonly known as kudu, the other being the lesser kudu, T. imberbis. Greater kudus have a narrow body with long legs, and their coats
can range from brown/bluish grey to reddish brown. They possess between 4 and 12 vertical white stripes along their torso. The head
tends to be darker in colour than the rest of the body, and exhibits a small white chevron which runs between the eyes.
Greater kudu bulls tend to be much larger than the cows, and vocalize much more, utilizing low grunts, clucks, humming, and gasping.
The bulls also have large manes running along their throats, and large horns with two and a half twists, which, were they to be straightened,
would reach an average length of 120 cm (47 in).
