Interspecies Conflict/Wildebeest vs Capybara

Question
Hi Jonathan welcome back. Any ways who would win between a Wildebeest and a Capybara?

Thanks

Answer
Hi Gian. Thanks, it's lovely to be back :)

The Wildebeest would win this pretty handily. Bull Wildebeest can weigh over 250kg, and are muscular, athletic and very well armed with sword-like horns and pounding hooves. Capybara are much smaller and have considerably less weaponry than the antelope. The Wildebeest would just gore and trample the Capybara at will.

Wildebeest wins.

Thanks for the question Gian!

Keep asking.

Jonathan.

Expertise

I can answer any question on land carnivores. Big cats are my main area of expertise. I can answer questions on weight, behavior, and on any possible match-up among mammals, reptiles and insects, but the latter is less preferred. I am not very well informed with dinosaurs and prehistoric animals, so please refrain from asking me questions about them. Just modern animals please. Also questions on bite force are not the best, as they vary greatly.

Experience

I am a wildlife enthusiast. I have visited countless zoos globally to observe animal behavior, and i have also seen animals such as Rhinos, Elephants and Big Cats in the wild and synthetic environments. I watch nearly every animal documentary available, and have really acquired considerable knowledge of animals and animal conflicts as a result. I know a lot.

Publications
I have written several articles on Wikipedia. I also will soon start writing blogs about Big Cats.

Education/Credentials
I have a C grade at GCSE Science. However, nothing gives you more knowledge than experiencing animals in the flesh. No qualification can give you that kind of insight.
