Subject Difference to the common Eland

Good Day

What are the main differences between the giant Eland and the common Eland that is found more in Southern Africa especially South Africa?
I was told that although the giant Eland is smaller it has longer horns?

The size and weight of the Common eland and the Giant eland are quite similar, more or less depending on the information source. The main differences are in the overall look. The Giant eland is more kudu-like species, with the elegant body construction. The dewlap in Giant eland starts just under the chin, in the Common eland it starts on the neck. The Giant eland has more stripes then the Common eland and the colouring and marks are more pronounced. Ears are rounded in the Giant eland and pointed in the Common eland.

Up to 13 calves may be born this season, presumably from December to February. We hope that one of them will be finally born in the Fathala reserve.
