ID help with gazelle in UAE

  1. Dr. Robert F. Foster 6 months ago

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

  2. Andrew Spalton 6 months ago

    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.

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