What a strange looking animal it is! Definiteley, the least graceful of all the antelope type. It seems to consist of parts belonging to different animals: its heavily built forequarters may have come from an ox, hindquarters, which are much slender, from an antelope and a mane and tail from a horse. Its horns resemble those of a buffalo. Its square head looks like a box. But despite its frightening looks, it is not particularly dangerous.
Wildebeest is also known as gnu.
