Gnu class: Mammal

The wildebeest (plural, wildebeest or wildebeests), also called the gnu (/gnu/ or /nju/), is an antelope of the genus Connochaetes. It is a hooved (ungulate) mammal.

Connochaetes includes two species, both native to Africa: the Black Wildebeest, or white-tailed gnu (C. gnou), and the Blue Wildebeest, or brindled gnu (C. taurinus). Gnus belong to the family Bovidae, which includes antelopes, cattle, goats, and other even-toed horned ungulates.

Wildebeest grow to 3 ft 9 in4 ft 7 in (1.151.4 metres) at the shoulder and weigh 330550 pounds (150250 kilograms). They inhabit the plains and open woodlands of Africa, especially the Serengeti National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Tanzania. Wildebeest can live more than 20 years.

The principal food source of wildebeest is grasses. The seasonal nature of the African grasslands forces wildebeest to migrate. The main migration is in May, when around 1.5 million animals move from the plains to the woods; they return in November as summer rains water the plains.

The name wildebeest finds its origin in the Dutch and Afrikaans words wild and beest, which mean wild animal and beast in Afrikaans means cattle (or steer). Although the name is derived from the Dutch language, the name wildebeest doesn't officially exist in the Dutch language; the Dutch name for wildebeest is gnoe (where the Dutch g is pronounced , the unvoiced palatine fricative, as the ch in loch).

Afrikaners (Afrikaans-speaking South Africans) may have started using the name wildebeest for the animal as they had no other name for it when it was first encountered. Gnu is from a Khoikhoi language (which pronounced the ), likely an imitation of the grunting noise that a wildebeest makes. The Gnu has a huge range due to its migratory behavior.
