Kobus megaceros

Lechwe del Nilo (Sp), Weissnacken moorantilope (G), Cobe de Mrs. Gray (F). Also called Mrs. Gray lechwe.

DESCRIPTION (male) Shoulder height 38-40 inches (96-102 cm). Weight 200-265 pounds (90-120 kg).

A handsome, medium-sized antelope with a rough, blackish-brown coat, a large white shoulder patch and long, S-haped horns. The ears and underparts are white and there are white markings over the eyes and on the muzzle and chin. The hoofs are elongated and spread, and the back of the pasterns is hairless, which are adaptations to swampy habitat. The female is smaller than the male, without horns, chestnut-fawn in color and without the white shoulder patch.

DISTRIBUTION Private properties in Texas.

REMARKS Native to swamps in southern Sudan and extreme western Ethiopia, where they usually provided a memorable hunting experience. Unfortunately, access to their habitat has not been possible for many years because of prolonged warfare.

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