About the Robert’s Gazelle - Gazella granti robertsi
Because of its limited range, a taxidermy mount of the Robert’s Gazelle is hard to come by. Found only in Serengeti of Tanzania and Kenya. Quite similar to the southern Grant’s gazelle in appearance and size, except that the male's horns are not lyrate, but bend sharply outward at a point about one-third of their length from the base, so that the tips are very far apart with the tips bending backward and out. They are fawn colored with a white underbelly and distinctive white facial markings. A mature buck will stand three feet at the shoulder and can weigh up to 180 pounds.
This gazelle is territorial, with the larger, older, dominant bucks aggressively keeping a herd of females. They prefer open grass plains and are frequently found in shrublands; it avoids areas with high grass where the visibility of predators is compromised. They are also well adapted for dry, semiarid areas. The most common predators of the Robert's gazelle are cheetahs, leopards, and wild dogs.
