The blue wildebeest, also called the common wildebeest, white-bearded wildebeest or brindled gnu, live in large herds in eastern Africa.
The blue wildebeest is a large antelope and one of the two species of wildebeest. Strictly grazers, wildebeest prefer short grass. They are unable to go without water for more than a few days. Although the animals have no camouflage coloring, they get some protection from gathering in large herds.
