Alcelaphus buselaphus

Number 0050

This particular hartebeest is a red hartebeest. Hartebeests live in Africa, and they are popular among hunters. Especially after they’re dead. Their coloring is quite lovely, as are their spiraling horns. Thanks to the hartebeest, I’ve discovered a new source for profiles of mammals:’s hunting section! It has illustrations, rather than the more standard photographs of dudes grinning over the carcass, thank goodness.
