Waterbuck

Kobus ellipsiprymnus

I am quite common in the woodlands and savannah areas all over Africa. My kind and I usually cohabit in herds of 6 up to 30 animals. One male waterbuck is always present to defend the territory.

From my name, my kind and I have a very close connection with bodies of water; we love to live near water as it is useful to us when we try to escape from a whole bunch of predators.

My diet is made up of grass, leaves, soft shoots, and shrubs mostly. We also drink water several times a day.
