Tragelaphus – Spiral-horned antelopes

Medium- to large-sized antelope-like bovines of Central & South African forests

Members of this genus are large-sized, lightly built, have long necks, and have considerable sexual dimorphism.

They feed on various species like herbs and many plant species’ leaves, twigs, and flowers. Breeding occurs throughout the year, males are polygynous, and females produce single young at an average interval of 11.6 months.

Associations between individuals of this genus are influenced by reproductive behavior but unaffected by environmental conditions.
