Redunca fulvorufula chanleri

Named for American sportsman William Astor Chanler, who "discovered" it in 1893.

DESCRIPTION The Chanler mountain reedbuck is a small, elegant reedbuck. It is smaller than the southern mountain reedbuck and its body is grayer, contrasting noticeably with its reddish neck and head. The horns are considerably shorter than those of a southern mountain reedbuck, seldom-if ever-as long as the ears.

DISTRIBUTION Discontinuously in its specialized habitat, from Awash National Park in Ethiopia (its northernmost limit) southward along the Rift Valley in Ethiopia and western Kenya to northeastern Tanzania. It also occurs in extreme northeastern Uganda and extreme southeastern Sudan.

In Ethiopia, Chanler mountain reedbucks are found mainly from 4,000-10,000 feet (1,200-3,000 m) along the Rift Valley, occupying isolated hills on the valley floor and on the slopes of both the walls. (Bohor reedbucks are commonly found at higher elevations than mountain reedbucks in Ethiopia.) In Kenya and Tanzania they are commonest from about 6,000 feet (1,800 m) up, and are said to have been observed on Mt. Kilimanjaro at 18,000 feet (5,500 m).

PLEASE NOTE Misclassification can be a problem with this animal. A number of "Chanler mountain reedbucks" entered for the Record Book have turned out, on examination, to be bohor reedbucks. The two species actually are quite different in size and appearance, and inhabit different terrain. Hunters are advised to learn what a Chanler mountain reedbuck looks like before they hunt it.
