As many of my readers know I watch a Ustream live feed called “Wild Earth Safari”. I talk a lot about the baby animals, Lions … As the guides say “The Big 5” as in the five most popular animal that people like to watch and see on Safari.
I feel kind of bad about it as well, because there are just so many beautiful animals. Including a beautiful beast called the “Kudu”.

After Lions, Elephants and Hyena I just adore these animals are just gorgeous and they are so beautiful. They are just so magical and mythical like.
The horns on a Kudu bulls head can reach all the way up too 120cm (47 in), if they were to be straightened. A Kudu bull can also reach a weight of 190kg – 270 kg (420 – 600 lb). They are quiet large animals. The other interesting thing to note is that a Kudu cow will leave a newborn baby in hidden vegetation for the first 4-5 weeks, coming back and forth. This is a little unusual with Herbivores.
