Serengeti-Park animals: Great Kudu

Great Kudus have a gray-brown coat with white stripes and large, round ears. Striking are above all the screw-top horns of the males which can grow up to a meter long. Female animals and their offspring live in herds of up to twelve animals. The males live solitary or join together to form bachelor groups. Only at mating season do males and females meet each other. The young are born in the rainy season. This has the advantage that enough food is available for the animals.
