The term “wildebeest” actually means “wild beast” in Dutch.
The name also translates to “wild cattle” in Afrikaans.
Vultures follow wildebeests as they migrate, eating many carcasses on the journey.
Newborn calves learn to walk in less than 7 minutes after birth!
Wildebeests often travel with zebras to increase their chance of survival.
