The Bushbuck (Tragelaphus sylvaticus) is a widespread species of antelope in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Bushbuck are found in rain forests, montane forests, forest-savanna mosaic, savanna bush, and woodland. Bushbuck occur from the Cape in South Africa to Angola and Zambia and up the eastern part of Africa to Ethiopia and Somalia. They are antelopes with geometrically shaped white patches or spots on the most mobile parts of the body — the ears, chin, tail, legs, and neck. At 10 months, young males sprout horns that are strongly twisted and at maturity form the first loop of a spiral.
