The Common Eland is the largest antelope on the African continent. It is a savannah plains antelope and is native to East and Southern Africa. The Eland (Dutch word for moose) are big animals that can weigh up to 1,500 lbs. The Eland is tan in color and both sexes have horns that can spiral over 2 ft. long. Interestingly, the males have shorter but thicker horns than the females (which are more pointed). Elands are one of the slowest antelopes and are known to live as long as 25 years. There are currently only two Elands on the 10xXx Ranch but they are easily seen because they enjoy a personal pasture.
