Reedbuck Mountain
The Mountain Reedbuck is an antelope, found in north-eastern South Africa. Mountain Reedbucks average 75 centimetres at the shoulder, and weigh around 30 kilogrammes. They have grey coats with a white underbelly and reddish-brown head and shoulders. Males have ridged horns of around 35 centimetres, which curve forwards.
Mountain Reedbucks live in thick mountainous forest, where they eat grasses and leaves. Mountain Reedbucks form herds of around five individuals, including single mature male. Adolescent males are forced out of their herds and form small bachelor herds. In the dry season, Mountain Reedbucks sometimes form herds of up to thirty individuals out of necessity. They are diurnal, but inactive during the heat of the day.
