Connochaetes taurinus johnstoni

DESCRIPTION Shoulder height 42-45 inches (106-114 cm). Weight 350-400 pounds (160-180 kg).

The Nyasa wildebeest has the smallest body and horns of any common wildebeest. The general color is brownish gray (browner than in other races), the face is mainly chestnut and the beard is black. Most specimens, though not all, have a conspicuous white facial band below the eyes.

DISTRIBUTION Southeastern Tanzania, and north of the Zambezi River in Mozambique. Formerly occurred in southern Malawi, but is extinct there now.

TAXONOMIC NOTES Smithers & Tello (1976) reported two percent of the wildebeest in Zinave National Park on the Save River in Mozambique had white facial bands, a frequent characteristic of the Nyasa wildebeest. However, the Save River is far south of Nyasa range and is solidly within the range of the blue wildebeest. Such specimens are treated here as blue wildebeests.
