Copper Springbok - Species Detail
Antidorcas marsupialis marsupialis
DESCRIPTION The copper springbok is not a subspecies, but a color phase different from the black, white, and common springboks. It is marked similar to the common springbok with the diagonal dark brown body stripe from behind its lower front shoulder up to its flank. The other body colors vary between specimens. Below the side stripe the body color can range between a dark shade of chocolate brown to a dark golden color. The body color above this stripe is a much darker copper color or darker tan than is present in the common springbok. The lower part of the hind-quarters is lighter copper or tan color than the other parts of the body and the legs are darker than the common springbok. The top, back and sides of the face are dark while the under parts of the jaw are lighter in color. A white blaze goes down the top of the nose from about eye level to the end of the nose. There is a small dark line along the top half of the back which marks the opening of the fan.
DISTRIBUTION Found on Private ranches throughout South Africa.
