Antelopes comprise a miscellaneous group within the family Bovidae. They have permanent horns, unlike deer (which belong to the family Cervidae): male deer of all species (except the Chinese water deer), and also female reindeer, grow and shed new antlers each year.

A gazelle is any of many antelope species in the genus Gazella.  Gazelles are generally considerably smaller than antelopes.
