Kudu are a species of antelope found in the savannas near thickets where they browse on leaves and shoots.
A pregnant female leaves the herd to give birth then hides the newborn for 4-5 weeks returning only to nurse it. When the calf is 3-4 months old it will stay with the mother constantly and at about 6 months returns permanently to the group.
Only males have horns and are found in bachelor groups or more often solitary. During displays of dominance they lock horns and have been known to get stuck causing death by starvation.
Predatory threats come from big cats, wild dogs, hyenas and primarily humans for their meat, hides and horns. The meat tastes similar to venison and is very lean.
