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. Common 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.
After Ono reports that there are bees near the elands, Queen Kiara sends her brother Kion to move the eland herd away from the bees. Kion, however, chooses to move the bees rather than the herd. As a result, the bees attack the elands and the Lion Guard.
A herd of elands become trapped between a wildfire and Poromoko Crevasse, but the Lion Guard manages to create a bridge and saves the elands out of danger.
Paintings of elands can be seen during the "Wisdom on the Walls."
