Gazelle Tribe: Antilopini
Medium-sized antelopes which inhabit arid areas around the Sahara and the Horn of Africa.
Present in both sexes; the female horns are very short compared to male horns.
Smooth and glossy
Tan with white underparts and rump. Most species have a dark stripe on the side as well as black facial markings.
Large herds always have a territorial male while small herds tend to have a territorial male as well. Gazelles of different species often herd together, take Grant's and Thompson's gazelles, for example.
How they move
Gazelle can reach top speeds of 50 to 55 mph (82 - 89 kph). Gazelle also have the ability to jump, dodge, and turn sharply while escaping predators.
