About the Steenbok (Raphicerus campestris)

The Steenbok (or Steinbok) is a small antelope commonly found throughout the eastern and southern regions of Africa. They are typically brown and tan with shades of dark orange on their backs and cream colored on the underbelly. Males have smooth, straight horns that typically run parallel to each other. The Steenbok's habitat is often woodlands and thickets with the ability to live in semi-arid desert edges as well. Their diet includes low level browse on vegetation and fruits while also digging up roots and bulbs to eat. Steenboks have the unique ability to utilize the water found in the browse they eat to meet their hydration requirements, allowing them to go without water for an entire season or longer if necessary.

Their coloration is a mixture of browns throughout the back with a white spotted side and flank, white and brown legs, a white 'harness' on the front chest and a mixture of white, sienna and dark brown on the face. Bushbuck often weigh between 100-175 lbs, with their diet including mainly browse with other vegetation mixed in.
