About the Blue Wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus)

The Blue Wildebeest (or Common Wildebeest) is an antelope species found through most of southern Africa. They are famous for one of the greatest migration spectacles on the planet, as one and a half million wildebeest move northeast in the early summer of every year, in search of greener pastures. The wildebeest has a unique shaped oversized head, shaggy brown coat, pointed beard and sharp curved horns. The wildebeest must be on the constant lookout, as it is a favorite meal for predators like lions, hyenas, and patient crocodiles.
