Map Legend

Tragelaphus scriptus scriptus

The common name is from the harness pattern of spots and stripes on the flanks. It is somewhat misleading, because both Nile and Chobe bushbucks have similar patterns.

DESCRIPTION Shoulder height 26-30 inches (66-76 cm). Weight 70-100 pounds (32-45 kg).

The smallest race of bushbuck, with the smallest horns. Body and horns are smaller in the western parts of its distribution range, increasing in size toward the east. The ground color is a chestnut red, with the harness pattern very pronounced. Females are a lighter shade, with more conspicuous stripes and spots.

DISTRIBUTION From southern Senegal eastward as far as southern Chad and the Central African Republic; southward throughout Rio Muni, Gabon and Congo (B); and Congo (K) except for the northeast corner and Katanga Province in the southeast.

TAXONOMIC NOTES Includes gratus, johannae, knutsoni, nec, obscurus, phaleratus, pictus, punctatus, scriptus, signatus and uellensis, with scriptus Pallas, 1776 having priority.
