One of the main things that threaten the water bucks
survival is the building of hydroelectric dams which
take away their seasonal floodplain habitat.
Because of their splayed hooves, they have a rather
unusual bounding type of gallop that works very well
when running on wet ground and in shallow waters.
Water bucks are also called Lechwe. Lechwe feed on grasses
that grow in flooded meadows bordering rivers and lakes.
Water bucks feed near the water in the mornings and
then take things easy relaxing during the rest of the day.

They weigh about 175 to 225 pounds, live for up to
