Grant's Gazelle Fact Sheet

  • Latin Name

    Gazella granti
  • Class

    Mammals
  • Order

    Artiodactyla
  • Range

    Grant's gazelles are found in eastern Africa, from Ethiopia to Tanzania.

  • Habitat

    This hoofed species prefers dry grasslands and savannas.

  • Niche

    The Grant's gazelle browses primarily on grasses and woody plants. The species constantly migrates in search of fresh food. Jackals and hyenas prey on young gazelles, and adults are vulnerable to big cats.

  • Life History

    Grant's gazelles spend most of their time in mixed-gender herds of up to 30 members. During breeding season, males establish territories in order to attract mates. Females give birth after six months of gestation, and young are able to move with their mother within an hour of birth.
