Wildebeest herd. Herd of wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) migrating on the Masai Mara plains of Kenya. The wildebeest (or gnu) lives in continuously moving herds numbering several thousand animals. The wildebeest is a herbivore that feeds mainly on grass. During periods of drought the herds gather at watering holes, and when the rains arrive the herds tend to disperse. Wildebeest are a major prey species for many of the large predators, including lions, cheetahs, and wild dogs.
