The Wildebeest

The wildebeest is really a subspecies of the antelope, despite its bull-like look. There are two recognized species of wildebeest, both of which are resident to Africa. The changing African seasons denote the wildebeest must travel south in the winter, so the wildebeest can carry on to crop on grass. Thousands of wildebeest all tend to migrate at once creating a wildebeest charge.
Wildebeest is a major source of quarry for many big African mammals that often choose out the weaker wildebeest from the exterior of the herd. Wildebeest usually grow up to around 1.5 tall but are moderately unprotected next to dominant, carnivorous predators for example lions and crocodiles.
Wildebeest are able to sense thunderstorms that are up to 30 miles away and wildebeest chase these rains from corner to corner Africa in what is usually known as the huge migration. Wildebeest trek approximately 30 miles everyday and around 1,000 miles a year as wildebeest follow the rains so as to find the best grass.
