Blue Wildebeest

Connochaetes taurinus

Did you know that I am part of the family of antelopes and that wildebeests are one of the largest antelopes there are? I can reach up to 8 feet in length, 4.5 feet in height and weigh up to 600 pounds. I have a mane like a horse and curved horns.

We have been known to be odd-looking and male counterparts have been dubbed as “clowns of savannah” as they have a weird behavior during mating season.
