The Thomson's gazelle is one of the best-known gazelles. It is considered by some to be a subspecies of the Red-fronted Gazelle and was formerly considered a member of the genus Gazella within the subgenus Eudorcas, before Eudorcas was elevated to genus status. Thomson's gazelles can be found in numbers exceeding 500 000 in Africa and are recognized as the most common type of gazelle in East Africa.
