The Nyala (Tragelaphus angasii), is a spiral-horned antelope native to southern Africa as well as the Bale region of Ethiopia.  The coat is maroon or rufous brown in females and juveniles but grows a dark brown or slate grey, often tinged with blue, in adult males. Females and young males have ten or more white stripes on their sides. Only males have horns, 60–83 cm long and yellow-tipped.
