These majestic animals inhabit southwest Asia and Israel and are prized for their beautiful, captivating coats of white, cream, and brown. They are excellent climbers, with their feet and hooves specially adapted to agility on rocky terrain. They are diurnal, meaning they are active during the day, and they feed on grasses, shrubs, and other plant matter.
Listed as Endangered by the IUCN, mountain gazelles’ numbers are rapidly declining, mainly due to habitat loss and poaching. As human populations in their habitat areas have grown, so too has the number of hunters and poachers that seek to capture or kill these animals for their own gain.
