  1. They look so similar to Impalas, how can one recognize the difference? Posted 5 years ago
    1. Pukus are slightly stockier and hairier than Impalas. And, for what it is worth, maybe less tasty? Every kill that I saw in Zambia involved an impala, whereas I never saw anything snacking on a puku. My observations probably don't reflect reality, but it did make me wonder. Posted 5 years ago

The puku is an medium-sized antelope found in wet grasslands in southern Democratic Republic of Congo, Namibia, Tanzania, and Zambia. Nearly one-third of their species is found in protected areas, zoos, and national parks due to their diminishing habitat.
