Thomson's Gazelle

Thomson's Gazelle image. The most common small gazelle, cinnamon, with a small white rump patch a bold black stripe and facial markings as well as black tail. The ram carries robust, parallel, strongly ridged horns, the ewe only short spikes. These gazelles reach high population densities in savanna habitats and graze, but also browse on herbs and bushes. They migrate in large herds, females and young grazing on the best patches, while males form a network of territories; large mixed herds with non-territorial males and bachelor herds are also common.
