The lowland nyala or simply nyala is a spiral-horned antelope native to Southern Africa. The nyala is mainly active in the early morning and the late afternoon. They are very cautious creatures. Old males live alone, but single sex or mixed family groups of up to 10 individuals can be found. These inhabit thickets within dense and dry savanna woodlands. The main predators of the nyala are lion, leopard and Cape hunting dog, while baboons and raptorial birds hunt for the juveniles.

More information on Nyala can be found on Wikipedia.
