Soemmerring's Gazelle


The Soemmerring's Gazelle (Nanger soemmerringii) is native to the Horn of Africa. It lives in Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, and South Sudan.  They inhabit open steppes with brush and acacia, as well as steppes with few trees. Soemmerring's gazelle is a tall gazelle with tan flanks, gradually turning to white on the belly and long black horns. They are about 75–90 cm at the shoulder, and they weigh 35–45 kg.
Soemmerring's and Grant's gazelles' outward appearance is so similar, they are often mistaken for each other where their ranges overlap.
