ABSTRACT
Gazelle, a small antelope noted for its grace and speed, and for its large, lustrous eyes. There are a number of species found in tropical and subtropical regions of Asia and Africa. Gazelles are fawn-colored to reddish, with white or dark markings. In most species both males and females have horns. The horns of the male are usually heavy and ridged, curving up and back, then forward and in, ending in a slight hook. The female's horns, when present, are shorter, straighter, and more slender. Gazelles were once found in great numbers, but farming and hunting have reduced the herds.
