Northern Grant Gazelle - Species Detail
Gazella granti notata
DESCRIPTION Often a little smaller than the southern Grant, with horns that are usually (but not always) smaller and more parallel. The notata race is darker than other Grants and the male has a well-marked lateral flank band. In the lacuum race, the flank band is absent in both sexes.
DISTRIBUTION Southwestern Ethiopia east of the Omo River and extending northward in the Rift Valley to Lake Zwai, and north of the equator in Kenya except for the range of the Bright gazelle in the northwest. For convenience in record keeping, we follow Rowland Ward in using the equator to separate the northern Grant from the southern Grant. (This is a change from earlier editons.)
TAXONOMIC NOTES Includes lacuum (south of Lake Zwai, Ethiopia), notata (west slope of Lorogi Mountains, Kenya), and raineyi (Isiolo Valley, Kenya), with notata Thomas, 1897 having priority.
We note, without comment, that Kingdon (1997) considers the northern Grant and Bright gazelles to be consubspecific.
