General Information about the White Bearded Gnu (Connochaetes taurinus albojubatus)

The White Bearded Gnu (Wildebeest) can be found in the savannas, woodlands, and plains of both southeastern Kenya and northeastern Tanzania in Africa. It is also called the eastern white-bearded wildebeest and shares its name with only one other type of species - the black wildebeest. Males can weigh over 600 lbs growing horns that curve horizontally outward from the head, making a curl back inward toward the tip. Wildebeest require water every few days, so a nearby water source is vital to combat the heat of the African plains. This need for water often brings them to rivers, where they must avoid land predators such as the Lion and Hyena, as well as Crocodiles that lie patiently in the water ready to ambush the Wildebeest as it comes to drink at the river's edge. Their diet consists mostly of grasses and short green vegetation, as their rounded mouth makes eating other browse difficult.
