Southern Grant Gazelle - Species Detail
Gazella granti granti
DESCRIPTION The southern Grant is the typical form. It has the longest horns of any Grant, or of any other gazelle, and typically they are widely spread. The general body color is light cinnamon or fawn. The flank band is faint, but the nose spot and pygal (rump) stripes are well-defined.
Differing somewhat from other southern Grants is the serengetae form of southern Kenya, in which the white rump patch is divided by a narrow brown stripe that reaches the root of the tail, and the horns diverge gradually and are not lyrate in shape. It is rather similar to the Peters gazelle in these respects.
DISTRIBUTION Northeastern and central Tanzania, and Kenya south of the equator. For convenience in record keeping, we follow Rowland Ward in using the equator to separate the southern Grant from the northern Grant. (This is a change from earlier editions.)
TAXONOMIC NOTES Includes granti (southern Dodoma, Tanzania), roosevelti (Athi Plains, Kenya) and serengetae (southern Kenya, near Taveta), with granti Brooke, 1872 having priority.
