The Reproductive Life Of Gnus

 

Wildebeests are African bovids with broad shoulders, cow horns and a broad snout. The horns are not furrowed, have a shape in parentheses, and are thicker in males than in females. Black wildebeests have a coloration that varies from dark chocolate to black, with males being darker than females. Both sexes acquire a lighter coloration of the hide during the summer, black wildebeest have a thick band of fur covering the flanks and another mass of fur situated over the snout. Males can reach 111 to 121 cm at the withers and up to 2 m in length, with females being a little lighter. 

Wildebeests are common in eastern and southern Africa, and can be found in a wide variety of habitats, from dense shrubs to open forest floodplains, however, they seem to prefer acacia savannas and plains with fast-growing grasses and at moderate levels of soil moisture. The mating season, also known as estrus, lasts for three weeks with favorable weather conditions, producing a high conception rate. 



Optimal breeding conditions occur immediately after the rainy season, when wildebeest can feed abundantly. Wildebeests breed once a year during a 3-week period immediately following the rainy season. After gestation, which lasts an average of 8 months, a single calf is born.
