Observation and photo: Mike Finlay.
There are several bushbuck in this area of public open space, this doe is a shaggy whitish grey, leucicism, I'm told. Dana Bay Conservancy's Ilona Birch tells me they have white bushbuck there too. They have observed that only females are affected and it seems to be passed from mother to daughter. What is the genetic explanation for only females being affected?
