Black Wildebeest are dark brown/black in colour, they have a body length up to 2 m (6.6 ft) and they weight between 110 and 157 kgs (242.5 - 346 lbs).
Black Wildebeest inhabit the open grasslands and bushveld of southern Africa.
Wildebeest feed on a variety of grasses and shrubs.
After a gestation period of 8 - 8.5 months, Black Wildebeest give birth to a single calf. All wildebeest give birth 2 - 3 weeks before the rainy season and within 15 minutes of being born, a youngster is able to stand.
When the calf reaches 4 months old they are weaned, although sometimes they will suckle until they are a year old. Females reach sexual maturity at 1.5 - 2.5 years of age, while males reach sexual maturity at 3 - 4 years of age.
