Caption: Juvenile blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus taurinus) relaxing on the ground. This wildebeest, or southern brindled gnu, is almost constantly on the move, searching for water and avoiding predators. Large herds of this antelope, numbering several thousand individuals, inhabit the savanna and plains of southern Africa south of Kenya. The blue wildebeest is a major prey animal for large carnivores such as lions and is thus active both during the day and at night. Photographed at the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, in South Africa and Botswana.
