Gazelle

  1. 1. Slender Horned Gazelle By: J A
  2. 2. Physical Characteristics Looks mostly like a deer with S shaped horns It’s colors are cream, yellow, white, and tan. Height: 30 inches, Weight: 60 pounds. Female and young stay in groups from 10 gazelles to 30. Males are found in smaller groups, or as solitary individuals. Its creamy color provides camouflage in its native desert habitat.
  3. 3. Reproduction Gestation is150 to 203 days One gazelle is born at a time. The mother typically cares for the young unless the male decides to stay with the family. Most young stay with their parents for one year, but some stay with their parents/parents for the rest of their lives
  4. 4. Habitat Live in parts of central Algeria to parts of Egypt. The climate is hot and dry. They live in the desert, open bush land, and sometimes they live in rocky areas. Terrestrial. Males can be territorial, defending their established area. Nomads, they travel continuously and usually don’t nest in one specific area. Unfortunately, there are not many of them are left in the wild making them an endangered species.
  5. 5. Diet and Predators They Eat… Hunts them…
  6. 6. Interesting Facts There are less then 2500 left in the wild due to poaching. Since the temperature is very hot and dry during the day, the slender horned gazelle comes out at night to eat and drink Palest of all gazelle species
  7. 7. Behavioral Adaptations and how they aid survival 1. Feeds at night: It doesn't have to feed in the extreme heat during the day. 2. Males battle fiercely: They defend the territories they establish. 3. Strongly Nomadic: Finds extra food 4. Require little water: Drink dew and get moisture by eating plants. 5. Care for young: They can nurse and protect their babies from predators, to help the young stay alive and live healthy.
  8. 8. Physical Adaptations and how they aid survival Pale Coat: Reflects the suns rays Enlarged hooves: Help them walk through sand. Nasal passage: Cools blood. Horns: Defense against predators Large ears: Hearing for predators that are close by. Creamy Pale coat: Camouflage in the desert.
  9. 9. Physical Adaptations Part 2 • Muscles: To help them run fast away from predators • Thin Fur: to maintain body temperature. • Short Tail: Predators cannot grab it. • Long Legs: To help the Slender Horned Gazelle run faster and take faster strides.
  10. 10. 7 features I would include in the Slender Horned Gazelles habitat • Desert Environment: Maintain Body Temperature • Shrubs and Bushes: To help them make their home • Lots of room: They are nomadic, and are used to having lots of room to find food. • Infrequent Water: They don’t need much because in their native desert environment, water was scarce.
  11. 11. 7 features I would include in the Slender Horned Gazelles habitat • Make the environment Warm: The Slender Horned Gazelle has thin fur which cannot withstand the cold. Also, the desert in Africa is sweltering hot and the weather in Cleveland in cold. • The color of their fur should mostly be the color of the habitat: This is necessary because the Slender Horned Gazelle naturally blends in in its native desert habitat • Some Grassy Areas: Slender Horned Gazelles eat grass to survive. Some grass is also found in their natural habitat.
  12. 12. Taxonomy • Kingdom: Animalia • Phylum: Chordata • Class: Mammalia • Order: Artiodactyla • Family: Bovidae • Genus: Gazella • Species: Gazella Leptoceros
