Abstract
Eland (Taurolragus oryx) calves, captured in Southern Rhodesian savanna woodland, were hand-reared, domesticated and bred successfully. They ranged freely with African owned cattle by day and returned voluntarily to enclosures at night. Live weights are presented. together with calving intervals and observations of food preferences and other behaviour. Photographs illustrate the handling techniques employed.
