Ok ...... so Wendy might be a Wayne......

But the jury is still out!!

Wendy may be Wayne..... and if you watched the Migration  
documentary last night on Channel 7 you may be just as confused as me because the Males looked like the Females and visa versa.

So I did some more research and I still don't know, but what I have learnt is that She, He or It is a Blue Wildebeest. It is a good specimen of the species because the horns are more than 60 centimeters wide and go out further than the tips of the ears.....??

The other thing I have learnt was that it probably is a girl because the base of the horns isn't overly wide or deep - the male tends to have rather wide bases to the horns.....

Oh well..... it is a problem when you don't have access to all bits of the creature.....

If you have any idea about Wendy or Wayne, I would love to hear it!


  1. Well Cathy I'm thinking that's a blokey sort of Wildebeest.
    The whiskers make me think so.
    I would sure love to know it's history,
    Maybe a hunter from Aus or a collector of Wild species.
    The big question is who will buy he or she??
    Can't wait for a hint. Of course we know you can't tell us.

  2. I'd tie a pretty pink ribbon around HER neck, or a strand of pearls ~ a girl's got to look good you know;)


  3. Wow. Things you learn about wildebeests!
