Had it been borelé or keitloa there would have been nothing strange in it.
The white ones were called respectively “kobaoba” and “muchocho,” the black ones “borelé” and “keitloa.”
At this moment, as if echoing his thoughts, the keitloa began to exhibit before him one of its peculiar habits.
Their food was principally grass, while the borelé and keitloa browse upon the tender shoots and leaves of bushes.
Until the keitloa should leave the spot, there was not the slightest hope of his escaping.
When another hour had passed, and still the keitloa kept watching him from below, he became more than uneasy—he became alarmed.
The keitloa is larger than the bovele, and has its two horns of nearly the same length.
These four kinds are known among the natives as the “borele,” the “keitloa,” the “muchocho,” and “kobaoba.”
