The common or southern reedbuck is a medium-sized antelope generally found near water and especially on the floodplains. They are distinguished by a long neck and body, sturdy legs, and powerful hindquarters. Color varies from yellowish to grey-brown. The throat and chest tend to be a grayish white and the belly will be almost pure white.
Their habitat consists of marshy areas that have an abundance of water and tall grasses.
They are found across much of south central Africa.
Full grown adults stand about 30″ tall at the shoulder and weigh around 60 pounds.
Only males have horns, which emerge at around six months old. The horns are strongly ridged, growing to be 12 to 18 inches in length, and form a “V”.
The average lifespan of common reedbucks is between 10 and 12 years.
