Impala

(Apyceros melampus)

     The long-horned buck at the left is looking suspiciously back at us: there were four bachelor bucks waiting nearby to take advantage of any loss of concentration on the part of this buck. Although they appear very fast, impala are actually not the best runners of the African plains. They are excellent jumpers, however, and when surprised, a herd jumps in all directions, thereby confusing any would-be predator.
