The common eland stands around two metres at the shoulder and weighs 275 kilograms (600 lb) to a tonne (2,200 lb). Females are sometimes less than half the weight of adult males. They are the world’s largest antelopes, together with giant eland which are actually about the same size. Females have a tan coat, while males have a darker tan coat with a blue tinge; there may also be a single white stripe vertically on the sides. Males have dense fur on their foreheads and a large dewlap. Both sexes have horns, about 65 centimetres (26 in) long and almost straight. The female’s horns are longer and thinner the male’s. They “are very agile and can easily jump a 1.5 m fence from a standing start” (sign from Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo, NSW, Australia).
