There are still discussions amongst scientists whether the “Erlanger’s “is a distinct species or a subspecies of the Gazella gazella group. It is a rather small and dark and short legged gazelle with a stout body. It inhabits the desert hills in a relatively small area in South East Yemen. There is no information on wild populations since 1906. AWWP and the King Khalid Wildlife Research Center in Rijad (Saudi Arabia) are the only known facilities that keep this species. Measures to exchange animals and starting a breeding program have been already undertaken. The IUCN classifies the Erlanger’s gazelle as VULNERABLE.
