Common Waterbuck Kobus ellipsiprymnus

Common Waterbuck Kobus ellipsiprymnus acquired the vernacular name “waterbuck” due to its heavy dependence on water as compared to other antelopes and its ability to enter into water for defence, like when lion attack.
The principal differentiation between the two types is the white ring of hair surrounding the tail on the rump, which is a hollow circle in the common waterbuck but covered with white hair in the defassa waterbuck.
