The Greater Kudu is a woodland antelope found throughout eastern and southern Africa. This is one of the largest species of antelope. Predators of the greater kudu generally consist of lions, leopards, hyenas, and hunting dogs.
During the day, Greater kudus normally cease to be active and instead seek cover in woodlands, especially during hot days. They feed and drink in the early morning and late afternoon, acquiring water from waterholes or roots and bulbs which have a high water content.
Female greater kudus live in small herds of six to twenty along with their calves, though males tend to be mainly solitary, they sometimes form bachelor herds, that consist of 4 to 8 young males (sometimes with an older bull as well). Rarely will a herd reach a size of forty individuals due to the availability of grazing and browsing growth.
