Antelopes and gazelles
« on: July 31, 2011, 11:23:07 PM »
See also: Beasts of French Africa.



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.



United Arab Emirates, 25 fils. Goitred gazelle.
