About the Gazelle:

A gazelle is any of many antelope species in the genus Gazella. Gazelles are known as swift animals, maintaining quite fast speeds. The red gazelle, the Arabian gazelle, the Queen of Sheba’s gazelle, and the Saudi gazelle are all now extinct.

Both sexes have ridged horns, but the females have much shorter horns. The top parts of their bodies are a soft, light brown and the underside is usually always white with both males and females.

Gazelle Habitat:

Gazelles are mostly found in the deserts, grasslands and savannas of Africa. They enjoy open velds and don’t like tall grass in case predators may be hiding. They vary their diet with seasons and get their water from the food they eat. They feed on shrubs, herbs, short grasses and shoots.
