Gazelles

Gazelles are a small antelope mostly found in Africa, but also in some parts of Asia. They are fast! Gazelle can run at bursts of up to 40 mph) - and that helps them to escape their natural predators, cheetah and wild dogs. You will find them in deserts, grasslands and savanna where they graze on grasses and leaves. Gazelles live in herds varying from 10 animals to several hundred.

There are 19 different species, but the most easily recognised gazelle is the Thompson's gazelle, also known as the Tommie or springbok, which has a distinguishing black stripe down its side.
