    I don’t have direct field experience with them, but based on the dark flank stripe and facial markings I would say the former

    Hi
    Looks like female and juvenile.
    Certainly Arabian gazelle (Gazella arabica)

    I agree with Robert and Andrew. Sand Gazelle has a much paler lateral stripe, and appears much less slender.

    Definitively juvenile and female Arabian gazelle (Gazella arabica). Take a look at these two plates for comparison:

      Very clear! No doubt about it! Now we just have to find Sand Gazelle in the future…
