This is a Bontebok. They used to be common in South Africa, but were killed prolifically as pests and reduced to a wild population of just 17. Thanks to one farmer who kept a herd on his land for pleasure, the population is now being rebuilt.

#introductions Hello! I'm still exploring after first setting up on mastodon.social. I'm not a professional photographer, but I've been a hobbyist forever. I live in the Los Angeles area & mostly post scenic photos, architecture, things I find amusing, and comic conventions.
