We saw this Blue Wildebeest (Afrikaans name, Blou Wildebeest) in Kruger National Park, he was following the herd and appears have some swollen glands just under his eyes. Not sure if this is a common thing or if it could be some infection. I see that his one horn has the tip missing, could this be the result of a fight? I wonder.

He appears to be well in every other aspect and follows the herd quite happily.

Along with the herd there was this young wildebeest and a warthog piglet, quite an amusing couple seeing they are on the 5 ugliest african animals list :)
