Abstract

The notebook documents Walter Leuthold's field work relating to Kob, September 13, 1962 - January 5, 1963. Entries are written from the front to the back of the notebook. Entries from the front include measurements for individual specimens, with sex, measurements (horns, total, shoulder, girth, hind, ear, tail), weight, sometimes notes on location in reference to observer, appearance, and anatomy including sexual characteristics. Some include additional measurements, time of day. Entries from the back are per identifier (e.g. FG7) followed by a list of descriptions of appearance including color.
