|Subject||Re: Difference to the common Eland|
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.
