This King of the Spiral Horns looks a bit off!
These photographs show a kudu with a bizarre growth sprouting from his head – caused by the fracture of his horn which has failed to regrow correctly.
Years ago, the outer part of the horn came off and was left with only the bone. Not long after, the owner noticed a growth forming – and it has been growing ever since.
It was captured by company manager and keen photographer Abraham De Villiers, 52, at Mowana Private Game Farm in Limpopo, South Africa.
Mr De Villiers was told by the owner the growth doesn’t cause any discomfort for the kudu as, while it might affect his hearing, it does not affect his grazing.
If he sees the kudu in any discomfort, he will have it removed.
