The Bushbuck is a medium-sized antelope found in eastern and southern Africa.
Bushbucks are shy animals that live in dense bush and forest, where they feed on leaves, flowers, fruit, and bark. They are excellent climbers, and can even jump up to 6 feet (2 meters) high.
Male Bushbucks have long spiral horns, while females have short straight horns. Both sexes have a distinctive black band across their white flanks.
Bushbuck populations are declining due to poaching and habitat loss. However, they remain common in many parts of their range and are considered by many to be one of the most beautiful African antelopes.
