Adult males of the nominal subspecies have an almost black coat, hence the name "niger"; females and juveniles are more chestnut. Both male and female have horns. Males are significantly larger with darker coats. Males of the rare Angolan subspecies, the Giant Sable, can reach 4.5 feet at the shoulder.
