A number of years ago in South Africa this beautiful animal observed me. In Dutch a moose is called an eland. In South Africa the largest antelope is also called an eland.

Thank you. Drawings of this animal are found in ancient rock art in South Africa. The eland was sacred to the San people and has been hunted for meat by many peoples. Today it is sometimes farmed. This one I encountered at a game reserve I visited.
