WATERBUCKS: AFRICAN PHOTO REFERENCE STUDY

by Larry Blomquist

In this second reference study on waterbucks I have a new collection of reference from several sources.The main source will feature many of the photos taken by Texas taxidermist Chip Johnston on his safaris to Africa. Like me, he has a passion for wildlife photography and Chip has sent me over 2,000 photos he has taken to share in Breakthrough. Many of his cape buffalo photos were used in the recent study in Issue 150. Waterbucks are more water-dependent than domestic cattle, and must remain close to a water source. This habitat furnishes waterbucks with a year-round source of food. Mainly grazers, they consume types of coarse grass seldom eaten by other grazing animals and occasionally browse leaves from certain trees and bushes. They feed in the mornings and at night, and rest and ruminate the remainder of the time.
