East African Bongo (Tragelaphus euryceros isaaci) is the largest of the forest antelope and one of Africa's most spectacular mammals. They live in Kenya.

Despite living in a very dense habitat, the bongo manages to move quickly when startled by tilting its head back, preventing the hornsfrom tangling in vegetation. Older animals may sometimes be identified by the resulting bare patches on the back.
