Male and Female Nyala Antelope by silvercrossfox Male and Female Nyala Antelope by silvercrossfox
The Male (dark) and female (light) Nyala Antelope. They look like different species, but they are not. It is an example of sexual dimorphism in the mammal world... many know of the differences between male and female birds...

Yep. Many people think they are two different species. Can't blame them. The juvenile males look like a cross between the two. Speaking of which, I should do an illustration of one. We have one at work right now.

:D I'm the first to comment! I love the female's colors; the orange is very stunning. You did a great job giving the fur texture, especially the white fur.
