Taurotragus oryx

The eland is a large African antelope having a light brown or grayish coat and both sexes have spirally, twisted horns. The Latin name used on this site is for the common eland. They are one of the largest antelopes and males often display the characteristic vertical white stripes on their massive torsos. Elands are herbivores that are most active during crepuscular hours (dawn and dusk). They inhabit open plains and savannahs and can be found in many sub-Saharan countries, including Kenya, Tanzania, DR Congo, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Malawi and South Africa. The gestation period for the eland is nine months, with females normally giving birth to only one young at a time.
