Springbok - Species Detail
Springbok (Sp), Springbock (G), Springbok (F), Springbok (Af).
DESCRIPTION Shoulder height 26-45 inches (65-90 cm). Weight 45-100 pounds (20-45 kg).
A medium-sized gazelle, handsomely patterned, with a long skinfold on top of its back. The color is reddish-fawn with white underparts, and there is a broad, chocolate flank band. The skinfold is normally closed, but when the animal is excited it opens to form a fan of stiff, white hairs. The head is white except for a narrow brown stripe from eye to muzzle. The almost perfectly lyrate horns (both sexes) are short, strong and ringed, with the tips usually hooking inward. Females are similar to males, but are smaller and have smaller, straighter horns.
DISTRIBUTION Private ranches in Texas and elsewhere.
REMARKS Native to southern Africa. Three subspecies are listed in Africa, but are not separated here.
HYBRIDIZATION The springbok is either known or believed to crossbreed, or to be the result of hybridization, when in a game ranch environment.
