BONTEBOK NOT Hartebeest



That is roughly translated into "beast of the heart".


COMMENTS

Blesbuck actually. (or maybe the much rarer Bontebok, since the differences between the Blesbuck and Bontebok are really minor).

Thank You.
That was a wild guess in any case

As it says in my header: My love of nature far exceeds my knowledge of same.

Correction came from Bentley in Western Australia.
But with him calling himself Oubaas there can be only one place where he came from.

Is ek reg?

I think there a couple of these at the drive through wildlife ranch around here. They look very similar though no horns (female maybe?) Thanks for the pics.

Jy's reg, Kees.

A Boer from WA.

And for Hammer, both sexes of both Blesbuck and Bontebok are horned. The males having thicker and longer horns.
If you could post a photo, I might be able to take a stab at identifying what it is, although I'm way better at the SA animals, since I spent many years hunting there, and as such had a great deal of interest in them.
