Tragelaphus scriptus decula

DESCRIPTION Shoulder height 26-30 inches (66-76 cm). Weight 80-100 pounds (35-45 kg).

A smaller bushbuck, fawn-colored with a black dorsal crest. There usually is an upper horizontal white stripe and a lower row of spots, but sometimes these are diminished or lacking. The underparts are darker.

DISTRIBUTION Found throughout Ethiopia, with the exception of the Gambella region in the extreme west, the montane habitat of the Menelik bushbuck, and the Juba and Webi Shebeli drainages in the southeast.

TAXONOMIC NOTES Includes decula (northwestern Ethiopia), fulvoochraceus (Lake Tana), multicolor (Awash Valley) and nigrinotatus (north of Lake Chew Bahir), with decula Ruppell, 1835 having priority.

Bushbucks that are thought to be hybrids between the lowland Abyssinian and montane Menelik forms are known to occur in the Rift Valley and perhaps elsewhere. Any such hybrids entered for the Record Book will be considered individually.
