KUDU by Cathrine McIntyre @ Museum für Naturkunde
Kudu are able to run very fast but often have a hard time outrunning predators so the kudu rely on their agile ability to leap into forest and woodland where large carnivorous predators find it harder to chase them. The kudu will then often hide in woodland until the predator have eventually given up and left.
Humans find the kudu and easy target for hunting due to the fact that kudus tend to stop and look around after they have run away.
Some local tribes people believe the kudu to be a sacred animal and therefore protect the kudu rather than killing it.
Human settlements have also meant that the kudu habitat as changed and the kudu have had to move to other areas. This has actually been good as the kudu have been pushed into areas where there is a better source of water and therefore food.
