Puku [Kobus vardoni]


A gregarious antelope occurring in small herds. The social system is centralised on adult males maintaining and defending territories which accord them breading opportunities amongst wondering female herds.


The Puku is predominantly a grazing specie.


Mating and births occurs throughout the year with a peak during the summer rainy season.


They favour a riverine or floodplains habitat. They utilise grasslands adjacent to rivers or swamps.
