Information

Antelope



The antelope is commonly thought to be part of the deer family when in fact the antelope has more in common with cattle. This graceful and quick mammal is part of the Bovine family which also includes cattle, goats, sheep, bison, and buffalo.

The coat colors also vary depending upon the species and habitat. The hair can be seen in variations of browns with gray and white mixed into the coat color and some species are red with stripes. The male sable antelope's coat is black except for the face, belly, and rear which has white markings. Typically, the coat is smooth and will blend in with the antelope's environment.

A major difference between deer and antelope is the horns. Unlike deer, antelope keep their horns their entire life and do not shed them yearly. The male and female have horns in several of the antelope species while in others, only the male flaunts this stylish head gear. The horns are hollow and come in a variety of shapes from wavy to spiral and the length can vary also.

The antelope's legs are one of its most important features. These long slender limbs must be quick and strong to escape from predators.
