Southern Mountain Reedbuck - Species Detail
Redunca fulvorufula fulvorufula
DESCRIPTION The southern mountain reedbuck is larger and somewhat redder in color than other mountain reedbuck, but is otherwise similar.
DISTRIBUTION Discontinuously in its specialized habitat in the eastern part of South Africa: the Transvaal except for the northeast and west; Natal; southern and eastern Orange Free State; and eastern Cape Province. There also are limited distributions in the Lobatsi area of southeastern Botswana and in the Lobombo Mountains of southwestern Mozambique.
In South Africa it is found as high as 8,000 feet (2,400 m) in the Drakensberg Mountains, on rocky hills in Zululand not far above sea level, and at all intermediate elevations.
Reports of its occurrence in northern Botswana and Zimbabwe have been discredited.
PLEASE NOTE Misclassification has sometimes been a problem with this animal. Several very large "southern mountain reedbucks" entered for the Record Book have turned out, on examination, to be young common reedbucks. The two species actually are quite different in size and appearance. Hunters are advised to learn what a southern mountain reedbuck looks like before they hunt it.
