The only african animal with a white ring across the rump. The female waterbuck does not have horns. Waterbuck are gazers and will eat most grasses. The males are very aggressive towards each other, especially in the mating season. When Waterbuck bulls fight, it is usual, for more than two to be involved. Fatal wounds can be inflicted when two bulls are locked together facing each other, a third Waterbuck bull attacks from the side, inflicting a fatal wound to the stomach area.
The very sharp horns render the Bushbuck very dangerous when wounded. A close relative of the Kudu and the Nyala.
