The Gerenuk is a long necked species of antelope found in dry thorn bush scrub and desert in East Africa, from Somalia, Djibouti and eastern Ethiopia, through northern and eastern Kenya to northeastern Tanzania. Gerenuk males are a little taller than females. Typically 59” long and 35-40” tall. Gerenuks seldom graze but browse on prickly bushes and trees, such as acacias. Gerenuks do not appear to drink water; they get enough water from the plants they eat. Because of this, they can survive in very dry habitats. Gerenuks are often prey for lions, cheetahs and leopards. At Northeast Taxidermy & Design, we will design your Gerenuk mount to enhance its best features and fit in your available display area. When completed, you mounted Gerenuk will be an original art piece for you to enjoy for a lifetime.
