Sable Antelope, Hippotragus niger

Sable antelopes are gregarious, nomadic animals. They roam the dry acacia country of Africa in large herds, usually led by a master bull, and they feed on grass and plant life.
Sable antelopes were much sought by hunters. Ernest Hemingway, who used to hunt sable antelopes, gives an interesting account of their habits in his book, The Green Hills of Africa. Lions are about the only predators strong enough to bring down a healthy sable.

Sable Antelopes are among my favorite antelopes and I was delighted when this one posed half an hour for me at the Zoo in Paris...

Thanks for looking =')
