The Greater Kudu is a beautiful antelope found throughout eastern and southern Africa. They are the second largest antelope in the world, and can weigh up to 600 pounds!

Greater Kudus are known for their distinctive horns, which can grow up to 2 feet long. These horns are used as tools for defence, communication, and navigation.

Greater Kudus are also known for their amazing agility. They can jump over 6 feet high and cover 30 feet in a single leap!

Despite their size, Greater Kudus are gentle creatures that prefer to avoid conflict. They spend much of their time grazing on leaves, flowers, and fruit.
