Nakong (Tragelaphus spekii), Speke's Antelopes, named in 1864 from the skin and horns of a male brought home by Captain Speke. These animals, which live in the country round Lake Ngami, have long, loose mouse-coloured fur, and their hoofs are enormously developed, enabling them to travel well over swampy ground.
