Introduction: Reedbuck (Redunca arundinum) can be difficult to spot due to their nocturnal habits and a social behavior of living in monogamous pairs, as opposed to larger herds. Populations are dependent on the existence of wetlands and seasonal wet grasslands, often the most vulnerable of habitats in southern Africa, due to erratic rainfall and subsequent vegetation deterioration.

Distribution: The wetter parts of north-western Namibia, notably Caprivi Strip and Chobe Riverfront regions.

Diet: A nocturnal grazer, reedbuck prefers eating selected grasses, but will consume small amounts of herbs if grass is scarce. It will feed by day if forced to.

Coloring: A tawny-grey coat with a white bushy tail.

Breeding: A single young is born after a gestation period of 225 days. As the young have to 'lie up' for a period of up to 3 months, adequate cover is vital for survival.

Size: Adult males stand up 0.95m at the shoulder, females 0.8m.

Weight: Males 70kg, females 51kg. Horns grow only in the male only and are up to 0.45m long.
