|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a Steenbok ram (Raphicerus Campestris) Typical of his species, he is very handsome and very brave. They are maniacs when it comes to territory.|
The ram and ewe pair for life and they live together peacefully in their chosen and heavily defended domain. The ewe has no horns and they look very feminine and ladylike. Fully grown, the rams are about 50cm at the shoulder.

A very interesting species, I create it to have seen in Kenya, in the Reserve of Shaba, seems to me that I have some quite bad photo but. With your shot you have obtained a spectacular picture... and it is not easy. Thanks to put to me like favorite.
