Antilopini

Antilopini is a tribe of medium-sized gazelles and dwarf antelopes[1] that live in and around the Sahara, Horn of Africa, and Eurasia. The females have very short horns compared with the males, and they have smooth and glossy tan and white coats. Most species have black stripes and facial markings. They have a territorial male as a leader in herds and sometimes group with other species, such as Grant's gazelle joining with Thomson's gazelle.[2] They top speeds of 50 mphs and have the ability to jump and turn sharply. They have adapted well to running in open environments.[3]
