Blesbok (Sp), Blessbock (G), Blesbok (F), Blesbok (Af). The name refers to the white facial blaze (bles in Afrikaans).

DESCRIPTION (male) Shoulder height 37-38 inches (94-96 cm). Weight 130-140 pounds (59-64 kg).

A medium-sized antelope, reddish-brown in color, with a small pale rump patch, white underparts and light-colored ears. There is a large white facial blaze that is usually (but not always) divided by a narrow brown band above the eyes. The horns (both sexes) are rather small, lyrate, ringed and usually straw-colored-especially on top of the rings. Females are similar but smaller, and have thinner horns than males.

DISTRIBUTION Private ranches in Texas and elsewhere.

REMARKS Originally from the central plateau of South Africa, but now introduced into all parts of that country, where many are farmed for meat production. Has also been introduced in Namibia and Zimbabwe.

HYBRIDIZATION The blesbok is either known or believed to crossbreed, or to be the result of hybridization, when in a game ranch environment.
