Lesser kudu

Lesser kudu
The lesser kudu  is a forest antelope found in East Africa. It was first described by Edward Blyth in 1869. The lesser kudu at one time was thought to be a smaller version of the greater kudu, but now is considered to be a more primitive species. The lesser kudu are 90 to 110 cm (35 to 43 in) tall at the shoulder and weigh 60–100 kg
Lesser kudu live in dry thorn bush and forest and eat mainly leaves. They are nocturnal and matinine crepuscular. They live in groups of two to five ranging up to twenty-four. Lesser kudu can jump distances more than 6 m (20 ft) and 2 m (6.6 ft) high.
