A clear black line (the “tear mark”) runs from the inner corner of each eye to the corner of the mouth.

Description: The largest living antelope, the Eland has a cow-like appearance. Its general colour is usually fawn or tawny, turning blue-grey with age, particularly on the neck and shoulders.

The black and white facial markings are conspicuous. The face is mainly white, with a broad black blaze from the forehead to the nose and a black stripe from below the eye almost to the muzzle.
Description:The Giraffe is the tallest animal in the world. A beautiful lattice pattern consisting of large, irregularly shaded patches separated by networks of light coloured bands covers the body. The colouring of the patches is very variable, ranging from light fawn to almost black. Old bulls are often very dark.
