When thinking of gazelles the picture of the Thomson's gazelle (Eudorcas thomsoni) often comes to mind, their most common and known subspecies. They are named after the Scottish explorer Joseph Thomson.
They live in the African savannas and grassland and wear a distinctive black stripe between back and underpart. Very noticeable are their giant leaps when being chased, that still look very gracile. Their beatuy is admired especially among Arab people, and in Arab poetry the beauty of a woman is often compared to that of a gazelle.

After a gestation period of about six months one fawn is born. They stay hid in the grass for the first two months, just like roes, because they are not yet able to keep up with the group. The mother nurses the fawn frequently until it is able to eat solid food. It then joins the group. If it is female it stays there but the males eventually leave and search for their own territory.

Our young gazelle feels comfortable when it is around its mother (Kö-F6420) and father (Kö-F6430), but will be very happy in a new home with someone to play, jump, hide, or and cuddle with.
