About the Steinbok- Raphicerus campestris
Steinbok are petite antelope, with long legs and an upright stance. The coat is a light golden-brown color, although there is some variation among individuals with some being quite reddish and others grayer. The undersides are white. Steenbok have few distinctive markings; the large eyes are ringed by a fine circle of white hairs, and there is a slender black triangle which starts at the nose and tapers upwards. The ears are extremely large on the Steinbok. The horns, found only in males, are straight, sharp, and very upright. When threatened, Steinbok will hide by lying on the ground and freezing in order to avoid the danger. If the threat continues to approach, they will rocket away for a short distance and then try to hide again. Aardvark burrows may be used as refuges. The Steinbok feed on mostly leaves from shrubs and trees, but also fruits and grasses. Steinbok are found in open grassland with light tree cover across most of southern Africa. Another population lives in the stonier acacia grasslands of east Africa.
