West Africa has a large body of folklore. For example, the tortoise, rabbit, and spider are usually perceived as physically weak members of the animal kingdom, but have strengths as well. Animal tales are probably the most common, with folktales about the tortoise, rabbit, or spider leading the way. Primarily viewed as entertainment, these stories often served the important purposes of educating children, reinforcing social mores and cultural values, and transmitting the general knowledge and cumulative observations of a given locality. As folkloric characters, these animals are broadly distributed throughout the region.

The Royal Antelope is often encountered more in logged forest with some undergrowth than in primary forest and it is frequently encountered in farm bush (Source IUCN Red List 2008). Now I am a great fan of Rowland Ward and its record book, which not only serves as a good reference source for hunters but, by setting high minimum entry levels, encourages hunters, for the most part, to shoot only the older animals.
