Numbers: Fairly High Weight: 22 - 38 kg (48 - 84 lb) Shoulder height: 75 cm (30 in.) Females horns: No
Found in the central and eastern parts of the Northern Province and Mpumalanga, especially the escarpment, avoiding the warmest parts, as well as in east Swaziland, mountainous east Free State, the whole of Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal,and in the eastern highlands of the Eastern Cape.
Although it is related to the bigger Reedbuck, it is much smaller and very specifically a wanderer of the rocky hills, small mountainous slopes and uneven mountainside where some shelter or mountain bush can be found. The ridged horns ends in smooth, forward bended tips. They move around somewhat to secure both safe grazing in the slopes and having their time at the waterholes before dark. The head of the herd will oppose potential competition, driving away his matured opponents with sounds of whistle and cry, if not with more force. They aren't spotted too often in mid day and won't hesitate to move far off if disturbed, covering a climb that took man half a day in just a few shift seconds!
