Eland (Taurotragus oryx)

Eland males are much larger than females, weighing 400-1000 kg compared to 300-600 kg for females. Hides are a uniform fawn color with some vertical white striping on the upper parts. A dewlap, thought to be an adaptation for heat dissapation, hangs from the throat and neck. Heavy horns are twisted in a corkscrew fashion and grow up to 4 ft. long on males, 2.2 ft. long on females.

Mass: 300 to 1000 kg; avg. 650 kg (660 to 2200 lbs; avg. 1430 lbs)
