Caption: Blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus), or brindled gnu, drinking at a watering hole. These animals inhabit the plains and woodlands of south- eastern Africa, grazing on fresh grass. They are social animals, living in herds numbering several thousands of individuals, especially when migrating great distances to reach fresh pasture. Both sexes grow short curved horns. Blue wildebeest are an important prey animal for large carnivores such as lions. Photographed in the Kalahari Desert, South Africa.
