Greater Kudu is this week’s featured animal at the Little Rock Zoo with Zoo & A.

Here are some additional facts about kudus from Nicole:

  • There is a lesser kudu that is “lesser” or smaller than the great kudu…about the size of white tail deer
  • Kudus live about 7-8 years in the wild and up to 24 years in captivity
  • Females and males range from 400 to 700 lbs
  • The great kudus horns curled are ~3 feet, but completely straight reach about 6 feet in length
  • They are herbivores, eating mainly leafy greens and live in Africa
