Cuvier’s Gazelle…

FUN FACT: They are nervous animals, quick to scare. They signal alarm by flicking their tail, leaping with head held high to signal a predator’s approach!
NOT SO FUN FACT: They were hunted for their skins, meat and for sport which lead to their dramatic decline in the early 20th century…now their numbers are dwindling mainly due to habitat loss from farming.
