Vintage from the 1950s
A fine older black wildebeest, or gnu, skull mount, taken in the 1950s. Measures about 18 inches long, with a maximum rack width of about 22 inches. The wildebeests, also called gnus, are a genus of antelopes, scientific name Connochaetes. They belong to the family Bovidae, which includes antelopes, cattle, goats, sheep and other even-toed horned ungulates. Connochaetes includes two species, both native to Africa: the black wildebeest, or white-tailed gnu (C. gnou); and the blue wildebeest, or brindled gnu (C. taurinus).
