They have a smooth reddish-brown coat with white stripes on the chest. Males are usually darker and larger than females. Moreover, both sexes have spiraled horns; however, horns are thicker and longer in males.
These antelopes were once widespread across the entire West Africa. But today, these animals live only in protected areas of southeastern Senegal and are considered vulnerable –with human activities largely to blame. Natural disasters have also played their part. For instance, competition from native animals and sustained droughts further contribute to the decrease in their numbers.
