Lechwe are a type of antelope that are found in marshy areas around Botswana, Zambia, Congo and Namibia. They are typically brown with white underbellies. The males tend to be darker and larger, reaching up to 39 inches at the shoulder and weighting up to 260 pounds. The males also have long, spiral horns.
Since lechwe live in marshy areas, they eat a lot of aquatic plants. This type of area also offers some protection from predators. They are so adapted to this environment that their legs have a type of water-repellent that makes it easier for them to stand and run for long periods in knee-deep water.
If you come see our lechwe you might notice that their hind legs are longer than other antelopes, this is just another adaptation that lets them run in marshy soil.
