So, I'm the newcomer in the Ana's Eland private club  cheers

A lot of things were already said about this new model but a crazy French macaque can't resist to add his pinch of salt.

As usual, more than usual if it's possible, Ana made a wonderful model. It remember me some great books or a great bottle of wine, so much subtlety, intelligence, fineness and soul that you feel happy, peaceful and very proud to be a part of the humanity.

I made a few pics and I hope they won't betray the beauty of this piece of art.

Thank you very much Ana do give us so much treasure. I hope you will do so for a long time.

Ok, here is the context for Roger's band  Wink

The Common Eland, also known as the Southern Eland or Eland antelope, is a savannah and plains antelope found in East and Southern Africa. It is the largest antelope in the African continent.
Females weigh 300–600 kg (660–1,300 lb), measure 200–280 cm (79–110 in) from the snout to the base of the tail and stand 125–153 cm (49–60 in) at the shoulder. Bulls weigh 400–900 kg (880–2,000 lb), are 240–345 cm (94–136 in) from the snout to the base of the tail and stand 150–183 cm (59–72 in) at the shoulder.
The eland has a mass of about 650 kilograms, which is the double of the kudu.
Theys are most active in the morning and late afternoon, lying sheltered in the heat of the day. They're commonly found in large herds, with no dispersion during the rainy season. They live in large mixed groups, usually containing 25-70 individuals, though up to 400 have been observed. Males use to stay in bushier areas when the females and juveniles move into the plains to feed on the grasses. As a rule also, the groups of males are smaller than those of females and juveniles. Some of its main predators include lion, cape hunting dog, leopard and spotted hyena.
