The Thompson Gazelle's are known as "Tommy's" and have a prominent black body strip.  They are quick and can twist and turn at high speeds, zig-zagging across the plains. 

Gazelles are beautiful creatures that will weigh from 130-165 pounds, with a life span about 10-12 yrs.  The Grant Gazelle is the largest one and has an upper tan body with a white belly and rump.  They have powerfully developed necks and long horns

Their voice is nasally but when alarmed its a loud nasal snort.  They are among the fleetest of all mammals reaching speeds up to 50 mph.
