This compact antelope is one I know very well! Bushbucks, Tragelaphus sylvaticus, are common in South Africa and inhabit a variety of wooded regions. They still occur in wildish places around my hometown of Polokwane. Bushbucks used to be classified in a single species, Tragelaphus scriptus, but this species has now been divided into two, the Kéwel, Tragelaphus scriptus, and the Imbabala, Tragelaphus sylvaticus. Only the latter occurs in South Africa. Bushbuck ewes don't have horns. Watercolour.
Beautiful ungulate, all tragelaphines are such amazing creatures.
Excellent painting, love the horns
So incredible, you really captured the grace of this animal!
Beautiful work! The Tragelaphus antelopes always make such great art subjects.
