The bluebuck or blue antelope , sometimes called blaubok, is an extinct species of antelope, the first large African mammal to disappear in historic times. Europeans encountered the bluebuck in the 17th century, but it was already uncommon by then. European settlers hunted it avidly, despite its flesh being distasteful, while converting its habitat to agriculture. The bluebuck became extinct around 1800.
