I've got gnus for you!

This gnu is running.
Gnu is another name for wildebeest.
Wildebeest an Afrikaans word meaning 'wild beast'.
Baby gnus can run within 3-7 minutes of being born.
One of the world's most incredible animal spectacles is the annual Great Gnu Migration.
80% of gnu babies are born in a 2-3 week period at the start of the monsoon season.
The gnu population is 15 times larger than it was in 1950.
