The Tribe Boselaphini belong to the Family Bovidae, and the subfamily Bovinae, which today includes the buffalo. This skull of Tragoportax was discovered in 1967 by Brian Patterson’s expedition to Lothagam at West Turkana. The Boselaphini were abundant in the Late Miocene and at Lothagam fall into two size categories. The genus Tragoportax includes several species. Horn core shapes are quite variable within a species depending on the age of the individual. Tragoportax sp. B is one of two small Boselaphins from Lothagam. Its horn cores do not exhibit the well developed keeling that the larger species do. There is some indication that the horn core shapes might differ between males and females.


The specimens displayed on this site are published specimens unless otherwise indicated. The information about the artifacts on this site is of a general nature only and unless otherwise indicated, has been written either by members of the African Fossils team, the National Museums of Kenya or the Turkana Basin Institute. The printed models are not of a high enough resolution to enable accurate scientific measurements and have generated using photogrammetry and in some cases low resolution digital models have been generated using laser scanners.
