Meet the Kudus
Kudus are a species of antelope that are originally found in eastern and southern Africa. They are rarely seen in the open, as they prefer to occupy savannah near shrubs and rely on thickets for protection. Kudus have brown and white striped pelts that help them camouflage in their environment.
