A Report on the Sexual Cycle in the Kudu Bull Tragelaphus Strepsiceros Pallas and a Description of an Inter-Sex

JD Skinner, BJ Huntley


Although Ansell (1960) reported that there was no seasonal calving pattern in kudu in Zambia, many workers in southern. Africa have since reported that there is a definite calving season in late summer from January to March (Dasmann & Mossman 1962; Brand 1963; Wilson 1965; Fairall 1968; Simpson 1968). No information is available on the kudu bull and the object of the present study was to examine the reproductive status of the bull at different times of the year.
