Another of the classical African antelope, the Waterbuck is a highly prized trophy and notable quarry. Despite its name, the Waterbuck is not truly aquatic nor much at home in water and swamps. It does, however, take refuge there to escape predators. The Waterbuck is a large, robust animal that have large, rounded ears and white patches above the eyes, around the nose and mouth and on the throat. Only the males have horns, which are prominently ringed and as long as 40 inches. The horns are widely spaced and curve gracefully back and up. They are sometimes used with lethal results when males fight one another over territories. The Waterbuck has a shaggy brown-gray coat that emits a smelly, oily secretion thought to be for waterproofing.
