This rare antelope (Nyala angasii) has a highly restricted global range, being found only in the high mountain forested grasslands of Ethiopia at 2000-4000m. They were the last of the great antelope species to be described new to science in 1910, and the global population (listed as endangered by IUCN) is probably fewer than 2500 mature individuals. They spent a lot of time shading under trees in the heat of the day, but are more active mornings and evenings. They were also incredibly variable in colouration and pattern. I thought that this was a particularly beautifully marked individual.

How cool is it that when you take all the cells out of an organ it still looks like an organ?
I remember when I was in high school and still very confused about how tissues worked, because all anyone taught me was that we’re made up of piles of cells hung on bones. But that’s not how it is! Cells build themselves little hammocks of polymer and densely branched glycoproteins; we’re like onions, layers of membrane over tough rubbery collagen, huge protein scaffolds cradling slippery organs.
Bodies are not made of cells — bodies are made by cells.
