Identifying the waterbuck

2 February 2017




Are there different types of waterbuck?



Yes there are. The characteristic elliptical white ring around the tail in the southern waterbuck shows clearly and is the origin of the name ellipsiprymnus in its scientific name Kobus ellipsiprymnus ellipsiprymnus. The subspecies Kobus ellipsiprymnus defassa which occurs in East Africa and is known as the Defassa waterbuck does not have this white ring around the tail.
