Studies on a male eland X kudu hybrid

Studies on a male eland X kudu hybrid

Journal of Reproduction and Fertility 46(1): 13-16

An accidental mating between an eland male and a kudu female produced an animal with primarily eland phenotypic characters. Despite pronounced male behaviour, the animal was azoospermic. Histological examination of the testis showed complete lack of germ cells. Chromosome studies with analysis of Giemsa bands showed that the parental karyotypes differed by 2 reciprocal translocations and 1 pericentric inversion, involving chromosomes 1 and 3, 5 and 11, and 9 resp.
