Nile Lechwe (Kobus megaceros)
Nile lechwe are one of the most aquatic of antelopes. Although they are relatively slow on land, no other antelope can run as fast through water or are as efficient in mud. Males are much darker than the females and have long horns which curve back over their shoulders. Their long hooves splay widely and are adapted for living in swampy terrain.
Ostrich (Struthio camelus)
These easily recognizable creatures are the world’s largest birds. Because their wing muscles are not strong enough to support their weight, ostriches cannot fly. Adult males, which can weigh as much as 350 lbs. and can grow to eight feet tall, are distinguished by their black feathers. Females and immature male ostriches have dull gray feathers.
