The Great Kudu is herbivorous, and feeds mainly on shoots and leaves. It is found in Africa mainly in mountainous areas, in hilly and wooded terrain, and prefers to remain hidden and discreet in its environment. His coat is streaked with vertical white stripes, a visible white spot adorns his throat, and a white bar on his chest. Its longevity is 14 years in freedom and up to 20 years in captivity. Not very fast in the race, it is easy enough to capture by its predators (lion, hyena, tiger). He is the victim of men, who hunt him for trophies and meat.
