Peters or Tana Gazelle - Species Detail
Gazella granti petersi
Named for Wilhelm Peters, at one time the director of the Berlin Museum.
DESCRIPTION A small, very distinctive subspecies. The fawn-brown body color extends from neck to tail in a wide band that divides the white rump patch. (Differs from the serengetae form of southern Grant, which has a much larger white rump patch divided by a narrow brown stripe.) The rump patch is narrower and shorter than in other forms of Grant gazelle, reaching only to the anus. Pygal (rump) stripes are well developed. Facial stripes are faded, there is a whitish band above the eye and a brown nose spot. The horns are short and almost straight, diverging only slightly.
DISTRIBUTION Coastal Kenya inland as far as Voi, and northward up the Tana River valley to Mbalambala. Also in adjoining parts of coastal Somalia.
