Very often Nyala are confused with Kudu and Bushbuck, although the Kudu is much larger when fully grown and the Bushbuck only slightly bigger than the Nyala.
Like most other antelope species, only the males have horns. They are lyre-shaped and the longest horns that have been recorded were 83.5 centimetres.
Their gestation period is about seven months after which a single calf is born.
