The Wildebeest is the dominant plains antelope in the acacia savannas of eastern and southern Africa. It's broad mouth equips it to graze a wide swath in short nutritious grasslands, and it is built to migrate long distances in search of green pastures.
The Wildebeest is an unusual looking antelope, with a broad and flattened muzzle; cow-like horns, short neck, and high shoulders. Their bodies are blue-gray or brown, lighter above and darker below, with black vertical stripes of longer hair on forequarters. They have black facial blaze, hair of long tail, and mane. Their beard may be black or white.
