Dorcas Gazelle

Lastminute-Express.de - Last Minute Reisen online

 

 
 

The Dorcas Gazelle is a small, horned antelope with splayed hooves. Living primarily on the perimeter of the Sahara, it is not uncommon for it to venture further into the desert, due to its ability to survive for long periods without water.

An extremely fast animal, the Dorcas Gazelle can maintain a steady speed of 30 mph, and has been known to reach speeds as high as 60 mph. 
 

Its primary predators are the Common Jackal, Striped Hyena, Caracal, and Cheetah, though its appearance on the Endangered Species List in 1979 is mainly attributed to hunting by humans.
