ABout Greater Kudu

Greater kudu horns can grow up to 72 inches and their coats provide camouflage.

While their horns are magnificent, they can also be identified by the stripes and spots on their coats. Males have horns, and females and lesser kudus are much smaller, typically weighing 50 pounds less.
