Buffon Kob

Central African Kob

Kobus kob kob

Cobe de Buffon (F). Named after French naturalist the Comte de Buffon (1707-1788).

DESCRIPTION Shoulder height 32-34 inches (81-86 cm). Weight about 150 pounds (68 kg).

As of 2003, we are recording measurements for two different categories of Buffon kob because of differences in horn size between specimens from Central Africa and West Africa. The Buffon kob (Central Africa), which is found in C.A.R., southern Chad, northwestern Congo (K) and northern Cameroon, has the larger horns and will continue to have a minimum score of 48. The Buffon kob (West Africa), which is found from Nigeria and southern Niger westward in the savanna zone to Senegal, has considerably smaller horns and no set minimum score, but rather at Editor's Discretion (E.D.).

DISTRIBUTION From Senegal eastward to southern Chad, the Central African Republic, and northwestern Congo (K).

TAXONOMIC NOTES Includes adolfi (southern Chad), bahrkeetae (central), kob (Senegal east to northwestern Nigeria), loderi (southeastern Nigeria and southern Cameroon), and ubangiensis (Ubangi region of northwestern Congo [K]), with kob Erxleben, 1777 having priority.
