About the African Sable Antelope
The Sable is considered one of Africa’s most prized antelope it’s long swept back horns. It resembles the larger roan antelope, to which it is closely related. The ringed horns rise vertically, then sweep backward in a pronounced curve. They are found in both sexes, but the male's horns are slightly larger and heavier than the female's.
Both males and females have manes on the neck, and when they arch their necks and stand with their head held high and tails outstretched, they resemble horses. This flexed neck position makes sables appear larger than they are. The males maintain this position even when they gallop, as the arched neck is an important manifestation of dominance.
