The blue wildebeest is a herbivore, feeding primarily on the short grasses which commonly grow on light and alkaline soils that are found in savanna grasslands and on plains. The animal’s broad mouth is adapted for eating large quantities of short grass and it feeds both during the day and night. When grass is scarce, it will also eat the foliage of shrubs and trees. Wildebeest commonly associate with plains zebras as the latter eat the upper, less nutritious grass canopy, exposing the lower, greener material which the wildebeest prefer.
