The largest antelopes in Africa, these animals move in herds of up to a thousand and are known for their agility and ability to jump a height of 2 m with ease. An interesting characteristic of an eland herd is that it includes a nursery for its calves. When threatened by predators, the herd forms a front, with the large males taking the lead positions. This fortress protects the calves and pregnant females.
