Throughout the breeding seasons the Black buck antelope
males always have the black to very dark brown dorsal markings that lighten slightly towards the belly. The under belly, inner legs, eye rings, chin patch and chest are white, with the outer coat darker brown to rusty red. After the spring breeding season the males will molt, producing a lighter colored coat all over the body. Typically the dark dorsal area stays about the same color but the lighter colorations do fade slightly to very dark tan to rusty-red colors.
Young Black buck antelope
males that are not fully mature and females are more of a dark tan color without the heavy dark along the back. Bucks are very prized for this distinctive coat as well as the beautiful markings on the face and neck, terrific for a full body mount
