 COMMON NAME
Blue Wildebeest
SCIENTIFIC NAME
Connochaetes taurinus

Wildebeest prefer open short grass plains, but during periods of above average rainfall when their favorite grasslands become tall, they tend to select areas withy higher trees and shrub densities but with short grass rather than remain in the tall grass areas.
