It is one of the most magnificent species of antelopes, with a white stripe running down its back and down to the animal’s side. Moreover, males are also bejeweled with outstanding spiraled horns, which can grow up to 1m (3.5 ft).
About one-third of its population is in protected areas, and its ability to hide in dense vegetation has saved it from the dangers of poaching. But, increased human activities and loss of habitat are some severe threats to its survival. The total population of lesser kudu is estimated to be near 120000, with a rate of decline that has increased to about twenty percent in the recent two or three decades.
