The Nyala

(please click on images to enlarge them)

Tragelaphus angasii

Un'animale molto schivo e timido.
Non facile da vedere.
Si incontra in foreste piuttosto intricate,
solitario o in coppia.
E'alto circa 1,1 metri alla spalla e il dimorfismo
sessuale è molto forte,come si può vedere.
---A very shy and secretive animal.
It's not easy to meet it.
You can find it in dense dry forests,
solitary or in couples.
1,10 meters at the shoulder.
As you can see the sexual dimorphism
is very strong.

Wonderful images Andrea. It is always such a pleasure to come across them. In Kruger you often see the females with the impala herds.
