The roan antelope (Hippotragus equinus) is one of the largest of all African bovids, exceeded in size only by the cape buffalo and eland. It is somewhat horse-like in appearance with a number of striking features; a distinct, erect mane runs from between the ears to just beyond the shoulders; massive, heavily-ringed horns, measuring up to a metre, curve back away from the head; and the face bears a prominent black and white pattern. The roan antelope is tall and powerful with a thick neck, and long, narrow ears tipped with a tassel of hair. The coarse coat varies in colour depending on the region; from grey, to more tawny, to reddish, and the hairs of the mane are dark at the tips.
