The Eland is the largest antelope. Bulls weight 700kg, but can go up to 900kg. The cows weigh 450kg. They have a brownish colour with grey in front. Both genders have horns that are straight with a slight spiral. They have a large variety of habitats from desert fields to mountainous terrain and savannah. For food they eating mainly leaves, but will now and then also eat grasses. If water is available, they will drink, but are not reliant on it. (Eland - Tragelaphus oryx)
