Tsessebe, pronounced “Sass-a-be”, they are among the large species of African antelope. The horns of this species are not as spectacular as horns on Sable, Waterbuck or Kudu, but still they have a unique and distinguished look and make a great addition to an African species collection. This mount has overall dimensions measuring 37″ high x 17″ wide x 29″(inches) deep. Bull hangs on a single, well secured fastener.
