Bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus)
The bushbuck is the most widespread antelope in Sub-Saharan Africa, and is found in rain forests, montane forests, forest-savanna mosaics and bush savanna forest and woodland.
Bushbuck stands about 90 centimeters at the shoulder and weigh from 45 to 80 kilograms (depending on sex). Bushbuck has a light brown coat, with up to seven white stripes and white splotches on the sides. The white patches are usually geometrically shaped and on the most mobile parts of their body such as the ears, chin, tail, legs and neck.
