Copper Deficiency in Waterbuck: a Disease of Affluence?




During July 2011, I visited the Gorongosa National Park, partly to investigate a phenomenon that several staff had mentioned as a possible pathological sign for the post-catastrophic ecology of the Park. There is a large population (approx. 13,000) of waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus) on the Urema floodplain, with a proportion of the waterbuck reputedly showing bleached fur, and several territorial males with only one horn.
