The blesbok or blesbuck is an antelope endemic to South Africa and Swaziland. It has a distinctive white face and forehead which inspired the name because “bles” is the Afrikaans word for a blaze such as one might see on the forehead of a horse. Blesbok can be found in open veld or plains of South Africa and Namibia. Their preferred habitat is open grassland with water. They often occupy relatively small territories of 2.5 to 6.0 acres in size. They were once one of the most abundant antelope species of the African plains, but have become scarce since 1893 due to relentless hunting for their skins and meat.
