Thompsons Gazelles (Eudorcas thomsonii) , Amboseli National Park, Kenya
Both the open plains and the grasslands are home to the Thompsons Gazelle. They are native to and one of the most common gazelle species in Africa. The Thompsons Gazelle live in large herds. They have dominant members that will determine when the herd will stop and when they will move along. The dominant members will use scent glands to leave markings along the territories that they cover. The males will be out there alone though and the herds will consist of females and their young offspring.
