The Brindled Gnu, also referred to as the Blue Wildebeest, is bigger and heavier than the black Wildebeest. They are a dark silvery grey color with darker bands on their chests and necks. Because of a bluish sheen, they are nicknamed Blue Wildebeest. They have tails, beards, and long, dark manes. Both the male and female Blue Wildebeests have horns, albeit the cows’ horns weaker. similar to the horns of a buffalo, but considerably lighter in weight, the horns grow outward before curving abruptly up and then inside. Above the top of the head, the bases of the horns create a boss.
