Eland are the largest of the African antelope, weighing up to 750 kg (1,650 lb). In spite of their size, they are prodigious jumpers and when fleeing, an eland can sail effortlessly over a neighboring adult, while youngsters can easily clear a 3 m (10 ft) fence from a standing position. Both males and females have horns.

Camera: Olympus C2100 UZ digital.

Location: Tala Private Game Reserve is a small private nature reserve situated near the city of Durban on South Africa's east coast.

Permitted Uses: See Terms of Use.
