Bush Buck

Bush Buck, a name for any antelope of the genus Cephalophus, which includes several species from tropical and Southern Africa, generally known to hunters as Duykers or Bush-goats. The horns of the males are short, straight, and conical; the tear-pit is reduced to a mere line; the muffle is broad, and, like that of the ox, always moist; the back is arched, the forehead convex in most species, the tail short, and the slender legs are terminated by minute hoofs. The coloration is uniform reddish-brown, slate-grey, or dull black.
