Reduncini are water-dependent, grazing, small to large antelopes with high crowned teeth.  The two living genera are Kobus (kobs, lechwes, and waterbuck) and the smaller genus Redunca (reedbucks). Only the male Reduncini have horns in modern examples.  

This cranium of Kobus kob has two complete horncores but is missing its dentition. The horn cores are usually short and stout and and curl backwards.

This specimen was found by Robert Moru in Area 10. 

Four species of Kobus are recognised in the Koobi Fora Formation, Kobus kob, Kobus lechwe, Kobus sigmoidalis, Kobus ancustocera and Kobus ellipsyprymnus. An additional species now extinct, Menelikia lyrocera was not uncommon. The extinct genus Menelikia was a common component of Pliocene faunas in East Africa but survived only until the beginning of the Pleistocene.


The specimens displayed on this site are published specimens unless otherwise indicated. The information about the artifacts on this site is of a general nature only and unless otherwise indicated, has been written either by members of the African Fossils team, the National Museums of Kenya or the Turkana Basin Institute. The printed models are not of a high enough resolution to enable accurate scientific measurements and have generated using photogrammetry and in some cases low resolution digital models have been generated using laser scanners.
