The male lesser kudu has striking cork-screw curving horns and a grey coat accentuated with fine white camouflage stripes. The females do not have horns and both sexes are shy, retiring to the shade and seclusion of the bush. They are a member of the spiral-horned antelope family that also includes bongo and eland. Lesser kudu are from the bush veldt regions of East Africa where they live in small herds and feed on a variety of leaves and plants. The lesser kudu is still numerous in the wild, however, their habitat is decreasing because of overgrazing by domestic livestock.
