Gift wrap available

Size: 16 3/4"
The Red Hartebeest is a large, reddish-fawn antelope with sloping back and long narrow face. Both sexes have heavily ringed horns. Of the 12 subspecies described in Africa, the Red Hartebeest is the only one which occurs in South Africa. The name Hartebeest was thought to refer to the heart shaped curve of the horns but the accepted theory now is that it comes from the Dutch word hert which means deer in Dutch and beest meaning beast. The term hartebeest was used by the early Boers who thought the animals looked like a deer. Hartebeest is the Afrikaans for hertebeest.
All skulls and bones vary slightly in size and shape. You will receive a high quality specimen of the selected item but not the exact one pictured.  All skulls, bones and other animal parts are guaranteed to be top quality; sourced from ethical vendors around the world.
