25 July 2014

QUESTION:

Are these animals in a good condition?

 

ANSWER:

Based on their well-rounded hindquarters the hartebeest are in an excellent physical condition. As soon as the physical condition deteriorates in a large herbivore its hindquarters become blocky, the hip bones become prominent and the outline of the ribs show through the skin.
