"So Much food, So Little Time"
Males are larger than females and also have a tuft of dark hair on the forehead. Their large size stores more heat than other antelopes. To prevent water loss, the Eland concentrates urine, has dry feces, and can lower its metabolic rate. The young are "hiders"; that is, they lie hidden by themselves for about a week, cared for only by the mother's occasional visits for feedings. It later begins to follow the mother and joins nursery groups.
