This is a skull with complete left and right horn cores of the antelope Tragelaphus strepsiceros. The horns have the distinct keeled and lyrate shape that is seen in modern, male Kudu antelope and thus are readily recognised in the fossil record. This species is considered to be an earlier form of the extant greater kudu, and is one of three species of Tragelaphini from the fossil collection. This specimen was discovered on the east side of Lake Turkana, during Richard Leakey’s 1971 annual palaeontological expedition. Tragelaphini are medium to large antelopes, with low crowned teeth adapted to a diet of soft and nutritious vegetation, including fruit.
