Beatragus hunteri Sclater, 1889a, is a bovid commonly called the herola or Hunter's hartebeest. B. hunteri is tawny with large preorbital glands, lyrate horns, and an inverted white chevron between the eyes. It is in the monotypic genus Beatragus. It prefers grassy plains with scattered bushes and is now restricted to a small pocket of Kenya on the border of Somalia, with an introduced population in Tsavo East National Park. B. hunteri is listed as “Critically Endangered” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.
