Sable-horned antelopes are one of the wonderful and unique creations of Mother Nature. Unfortunately, the species is endangered due to poachers that target their horns.
These animals are mostly famous for their shape of horns – ring-formed and impressive.
This is why some of these amazing animals are kept in sanctuaries and animal parks.
Many sanctuaries across the world are involved in breeding programs, helping the species to grow in number and continue keeping their survival.
Particularly, Zoo Gdańsk in Poland has recently announced good news concerning the birth of a sable-horned antelope. They of course celebrated the birth of the baby.
Thanks to the efforts of the specialists, these antelopes continue giving generations. Hopefully, they will overcome the danger of staying extinct.
The baby antelope was born from a 6 years old mom and 5 years old dad.
The newborn is doing well. The mother and her baby are regularly examined. The tiny antelope has a reddish covering with no marks. It is helpful for the animals to camouflage from their predators.
However, when the antelopes become older, white markings appear on their bodies.
These species are known to live in herds of 15-20 members, having a matriarchial structure of living. In each herd, there is only one male called a bull.
