As the name suggests, these animals are very water dependent and will never be seen too far from a permanent water source.  The trademark white ring around the waterbucks’ hindquarters is used as a “follow me” sign.  If one of the group spots a predator and runs, the rest know where to follow to avoid becoming dinner.   Waterbuck hair is hollow  and allows for extra buoyancy when swimming, helping the waterbuck to keep their heads above the water.
