The Ugandan Kob is a medium sized antelope found in the savannas of East Africa. They are reddish brown in colour, and have a characteristic black stripe running from their forehead to their tail. Ugandan Kobs are a popular game animal, and are considered by many to be one of the most beautiful animals in Africa.
Ugandan Kobs are diurnal animals, meaning they are active during the day. They are social animals, forming herds of anywhere from 10 to 50 individuals. Herds are usually led by a dominant male, who is responsible for protecting his herd from predators and other males.
Ugandan Kobs are herbivores, feeding on a variety of grasses, leaves, and fruits. They can be quite opportunistic, and have been known to eat insects, small mammals, and even carrion.
Ugandan Kobs are a critically endangered species. There are estimated to be only 2,500-5,000 individuals remaining in the wild. The primary threats to their survival are poaching and habitat loss.
