Swayne’s Hartebeest

The long faced endemic mammal with high withers and slopping hindquarters. It is a social animal and is commonly seen in herds of up to thirty, under the leadership of master bull. Both sexes have double curved horns on their heads. It was discovered in 1891-92, south of the Golis range of Somalis land by brigadier general Swaynes. The area was considered as the home of Hartebeest, but now their numbers have dwindled greatly and are seriously endangered species due to rinderpest. The Nech Sar national park has been established for their protection.

Menelik Bushbuck

The family of Mountain Nyala, the Kudu, the Bango, etc. Over 40 races of Bushbucks are identified in the world so far; two of them Menelik and Powelli Bushbucks are found in Ethiopia. Menelik Bushbuck has white or black hairs than run down to the center of the bank while the female has white spot on the cheek and blackish collar on its lower neck.
Bushbuck is widely spread on highland forests of up to 40 meters. It is easier to see the Buck in the Bale Mountains and Subba forest. High altitude with lower temperature is conducive for solitary Bucks. But Bucks are commonly seen in pairs in the Bale mountain national park. Bushbuck stands from 80-90cm at the shoulder and higher at the ramp. Horns, which characterized only the male, reach a length of up to 34.93cms.
Bushbucks spend the day lying in the bush where there is no chance of hunting them. They have loud alarm call, which at times is made repeatedly.

Its beautiful chocolate to chestnut brown coats shade to grayish brown round the muzzle, paler gray around the eyes, lower flanks, legs and rump, and pale gray or white in the belly and inside the legs. Both sexes have horns; the male possesses gigantic curved horns like arcs to the withers. It is over 110cms long unlike the female, which is shorter and thinner. It is a stronger built animal that has height of about a meter at the shoulder and weighing about 120kgs. Walia feeds on herbs and grasses, standing up on its hind legs like domestic Goats. It is common to see herds of Walia Ibex on the rocky ledges in the morning sun. The only habitat for this splendid endemic mammal is the semien mountains national park.
