Sexual behaviour[edit]

BBC reports on a peculiar sexual behaviour of the Topi. I could add the info from the BBC article, but I think it would be better if it were done by someone with access to the actual article published in the Current Biology journal.bogdan (talk) 22:42, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Moved and taxonomy clean-up needed[edit]

I'm currently updating Wikipedia with the latest scientific taxonomy of the Alcelaphinae as it is in Wilson and Reeder (2005). Therefor a huge clean-up is needed for these species, including this one.This page was formely called Topi, but that is now a subspecies under another species.

Speed[edit]

Reference number 5 links to a quote on a Hartebeest's speed and not a Tsessebe. These are 2 different animals. The Tsessebe is widely regarded as the fastest antelope in Africa and has been quoted as reaching speeds of up to 100km/h. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Boyshey (talkcontribs) 10:44, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
