The steenbuck is the largest of the mini antelope associated with the 'Little Five'. Steenbuck resemble small Oribi, standing 17-24 inches at the shoulder. Their coat is typically rather orange. The underside, including chin and throat, is white, as is the ring around the eye. Ears are large with “finger-marks” on the inside. There is a black crescent-shape between the ears, a long black bridge to the glossy black nose, and a black circular scent-gland in front of the eye.
Steenbuck occur widely on the open plains, but are not fond of the thick forest, mountains, or desert regions.
The steenbuck is found in the southern and eastern savanna of Africa. There are two main populations of steenbuck, separated from one another by the miombo woodlands.
