The bushbuck is an antelope with geometrically shaped white patches or spots on the most mobile parts of its body — the ears, chin, tail, legs, and neck. Male bushbucks have horns, which are between 10 and 20 inches long and grow straight back. At 10 months, young males sprout strongly twisted horns that form the first loop of a spiral at maturity.

The springbuck/Springbokvis an antelope found in South Africa. The name comes from the Afrikaans words for "jump" and "antelope" because the Springbok often go into bouts of repeated high leaps of up to 2 metres high in the air.
Springbok in their hundreds of thousands roamed the arid regions of southern Africa at the time the first settlers arrived, but the herds were quickly decimated and today they are only found in protected areas and farms.
The Springbok is the national animal of South Africa. The national rugby team of South Africa are also known as the Springboks.
