lechwe definition and meaning

What is a "lechwe"?

Lechwe are a species of antelope that inhabit wetland areas in Africa. They are known for their striking appearance, with long, spiral-shaped horns that can grow up to 3 feet in length. Lechwe have a shaggy coat that varies in color from reddish-brown to olive-brown, which helps them blend in with their marshy surroundings. One of their most distinctive features is their water-adapted hooves, which are elongated and splayed, allowing them to move easily through muddy terrain. Lechwe are excellent swimmers and are well adapted to living in marshy habitats, where they graze on aquatic vegetation. They are known for their agility and speed, making them highly adapted to their unique wetland environment.
