The Western Bongo is the largest of the forest antilopes. The male can reach a weight of 450 kg.
It is very shy and moves both during the day and at night in search of shoots and leaves that it grabs with its long tongue.
Thanks to its red-brown mantel with white vertical stripes and light spots, it camouflages easily in the forest. Both sexes have long horns and especially big ears.
