kudu
A large Southern African antelope (Strepsiceros kudu). The males have graceful spiral horns, sometimes four feet long. The general colour is reddish or grayish brown, with eight or nine white bands on each side, and a pale dorsal stripe. The old males become dark bluish gray, due to the skin showing through the hair. The females are hornless. Called also nellut.
