Redunca – Reedbucks

The antelopes with beautiful horns included in this genus are always active and alert

The reedbucks with tawny coats are medium-sized antelopes that prefer to inhabit grasslands with tall grasses. However, Redunca fulvorufula (Mountain reedbuck), a mountain antelope, likes to live around mountains. They efficiently follow trails to find the river, showing teamwork as some individuals drink water while others keep an eye out for predators.

It is very rare to find a loner among them as most individuals know that staying within a group increases their chances of survival. In case of an attack, they alert their fellows by jumping high in the air and making loud alarming calls. Unfortunately, overhunting and deforestation in the past few years have disturbed these cute herbivores.
