The greater and lesser kudus – two species of antelope of the genus Tragelaphus – get their name via Afrikaans koedoe which means part zebra part deer. The Lesser kudu, (Tragelaphus imberbis) occurs in eastern Africa; the Greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) is found in eastern and southern Africa. In music, a kudu horn is a musical instrument made from the horn of the kudu. In the sport of kudu dung-spitting, contestants spit pellets of kudu dung, with the farthest distance reached being the winner. The sport is mostly popular among the South African Afrikaaner community, and a world championship is held each year.
