Large Plains Game

“Plains Game” is a generic term that refers to African game species that are not part of the Dangerous Seven (including Big Five) or the Tiny 10 antelope species.  I split this very large group of animals up as Small Plains Games, and on this page as Large Plains Game.  For antelope species in this group, I include anything larger than a Nyala.  For these specific antelope, the males are often referred to as “bulls” and the females are referred to as “cows”.  Other buffalo species (excluding Cape Buffalo), Giraffe and Zebra species are also included here.
