Blue Wildebeest Hunting:
- According to African legend, God made wildebeests from bits and pieces left over from all the other animals.
- They are often referred to as the “poor man’s buffalo” as well as “brindled gnu.”
- They have been known to reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour!
- Blue Wildebeests are generally shy and timid, although they can become very aggressive.
- When being aggressive, Blue Wildebeests can be seen stomping, groaning, and thrusting their horns.
- Blue Wildebeests are known to travel in herds with zebras, allowing the better hearing and vision of the zebra to act as a detection system for danger.
- Another reason is that zebras eat the upper parts of the foliage and grasses which expose the lower parts that Wildebeests prefer to eat.
- They numbered 250,000 in 1960 and have grown to 1.5 million today!
- 85 percent of calves are born within a two-week period to maximize survival from predators.
- Newborn calves are able to walk within 10 minutes of being born!
