  1. Kob

    The kob is an antelope found across sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal to South Sudan. Found along the northern savanna, it is often seen in Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda; Garamba and Virunga National Park, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as grassy floodplains of South Sudan. Kob are found in wet areas, where they eat grasses. Kob are diurnal, but inactive during the heat of the day. They live in groups of either females and calves or just males. These groups generally range from five to 40 animals. Among the kobs of eastern Africa, the Ugandan kob appears on the coat of arms of Uganda, and white-eared kobs, found in South Sudan, southwest Ethiopia, and extreme northeast Uganda, participate in large-scale migrations.
