albano female kob, kobs of uganda
Albano kobs are extremely rare. We are either extremely luck or maybe it was just snowing the night before?
Female kobs reach sexual maturity at 13 months and males at around 18 months; at this point, male sub-adults usually leave the group and stake out territory in a lek. One young is born after a gestation period of 7.5-9 months. While births may occur throughout the year, in drought-prone areas there is a peak at the end of the rains (September-December).
After birth, the young lie concealed for about six weeks; after which time, they follow their mothers. They are weaned after about 6-7 months.
