Ono, Can't Wait to be Queen

Elands are antelopes that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands.


The eland is the largest type of antelope. Elands have brown fur with paler stripes and a pair of spiraled horns on their heads.


There are two types of eland: giant and common. Giant elands live in herds of up to 500 animals, but giant eland herds consist of only 15-25 members. Though they live in herds, elands are not territorial. They are herbivores, and will eat grass, leaves, and other plant parts. Elands eat in the morning and the evening.
