Cape Grysbok (Raphicerus melanotis), Bettys Bay, South Africa

A shy, solitary, nocturnal animal that is rarely seen. It is regarded as a problem animal in the Western Cape where they cause extensive damage to grape vines. Motorists travelling in the Grahamstown and Uitenhage areas of the Eastern Cape Province often see them roaming on the road reserves late in the afternoon or at night. There is little available scientific information about the grysbok.
