Blauw Bok

Blauw-Bok (Dutch = blue buck), a South African antelope (AEgoceros leucophaeus) living in small herds in the open plains. It is about six feet in length, and stands somewhat less than four feet high at the shoulder. The hide is black, and it is this colour, reflected through the ash-grey hair, that has given rise to the popular name used by the Dutch settlers, and to that of Roan Antelope by which the animal is known to sportsmen. The horns are long, curved, and marked with rings to within six inches of the tips.
