Kudu bull´s age

Updated: 6 June 2014 (Published: 24 April 2014)

 

QUESTION:

Is this a young or adult kudu bull?

 

ANSWER:

This video was taken late in the afternoon at a feeding site between trees and rocks near Tswene Bush Camp. It shows a troop of baboons sitting, playing and eating antelope pellets lying on the ground while a large greater kudu bull is eating antelope pellets by picking them up from the ground with the lips. Based on the shape of his horns this is still a young kudu bull. The baboons seem to be wary of the kudu bull but while he sometimes looks around and ruminates he does not pay any attention to the baboons. Later the bull walks away and starts to thrash the leaves of a bush with his horns as is typical for greater kudus. The baboons scream while they are chasing each other around and a large male barks a warning in the background. The video is continued in the video for 2009_06_01-17_36_42.
