Spekes Gazelle / Gazella spekei


The Spekes Gazelle is confined to the Horn of Africa where it inhabits stony brush, grass steppes, semi deserts, open plains and plateaus at medium altitude. Its numbers are under threat by competition with livestock, hunting and increasing urbanization. Therefore, its status had risen from vulnerable to ENDANGERED.,

The inflatable skin fold on their nose is to amplify their alarm call. In adult males it can reach up to the size of a tennis ball. AWWP successfully breeds this species for many years.
