The western or lowland bongo, Tragelaphus eurycerus, is a herbivorous, mostly nocturnal forest ungulate and among the largest of the African forest antelope species. Bongos are characterised by a striking reddish-brown coat, black and white markings, white-yellow stripes and long slightly spiralled horns. Indeed, bongos are the only Tragelaphid in which both sexes have horns. Both sexes are similar in size standing between 3-1/2 to a little over 4 feet at the shoulder. The females wight in between 330 to 520 lbs while the males are from 500 to 900lbs. Bongos have a complex social interaction and are found in African dense forest mosaics. The lowland bongo faces an ongoing population decline.
