About the Sable:

The Sable (Martes zibellina) is one of the largest of all the antelope species. Females are a chestnut brown to a dark brown in colour while the males are all black.

Both sexes have bushy manes, white underbellies and white chins. They are protective and although they are hunted by lions, they will confront the animal and harm it. Many large cats have died while battling a Sable antelope. They are a popular zoo animal.

Sable Habitat:

The Sable antelope resides in savannah grasslands and woodlands during the dry season. They feed upon grasses as they are grazers but have been known to chew on various animal bones to collect minerals.

They need salt in their diet and can be seen enjoying natural salt licks. Grasses are 90 percent of their diet but occasionally fed on herbs and shrubs too. They tend to avoid open lands, if possible.
