Most of them are forest- living animals inhabiting dense bush, usually near water, though this is not an essential, as some of them have been known to go without drinking for long periods when necessary.They are easier to observe in the bale mountains National park where they are fully protected and fully protected and therefore a little less shy. The record horn length is 34.93cm. They stand 80-90 cm (35 inches) at the shoulder.
