The roan antelope (Hippotragus equinus) is a savannah antelope found in Africa. Roan antelope are one of the largest species of antelope. Named for the "roan' colour (a reddish brown), they have a lighter underbelly, white eyebrows and cheeks and a black face, lighter in females. There is a short erect mane, a very light beard and prominent red nostrils. The horns are ringed and can reach a meter long in males, slightly shorter in females. They arch backwards slightly.
