Unlike other mammals, young wildebeest are able to stand upright shortly after birth, and can walk with their herd a few days after being born! Because wildebeests are constantly on the move and rely on their herd for protection, being self-reliant at an early age is vital.
Scientific Name: Genus Connochaetes
Characteristics: Like all Safari wildlife figurines, our wildebeest baby figurine was crafted with the utmost attention to detail and was hand painted to ensure life-like realism and scientific accuracy. Make sure to pick up a few more wildebeest models to simulate a real herd!
Size and Color: 3 inches long and 2.25 inches tall, this model is about the size of a deck of cards stood on its side. Infants are actually born with a light tan coat, and they don’t develop the silvery blue striped coat wildebeests are known for until they mature.
The Wildebeest Baby is part of the Wild Safari® Wildlife collection.
: All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
Like many animals native to niche parts of Africa, wildebeest numbers are unfortunately declining. Because wildebeests rely so much on migration patterns throughout the southern portion of the continent, any human development in those areas greatly hinders their ability to travel. However, all species of wildebeest are still classified as least concern on the conservation status spectrum, allowing time to figure out a solution to their dwindling numbers. We’re sure this precious wildebeest baby would love to go home with you, but it would feel much safer if it had its mama, or even better, its whole herd!
