Native to the wooded savannahs of Eastern Africa and Namibia where they feed on plentiful grasses, leaves and fruit, the Impala is one of the best-known antelope species. The males are territorial, while females form herds of up to 200 animals. When threatened, Impala flee into dense forest cover rather than open grassland as do other antelope. A tremendous jumper, Impala can make seemingly effortless leaps that span 30 feet or more and reach a height of eight feet. Despite loss of habitat, the Impala population in Africa boasts strong numbers and is not considered endangered. Their body length ranges from 48-65 inches, and they stand up to 38 inches at the shoulder. Females weigh 88 pounds and up, while males generally max out at around 175. Only the males grow horns, which average 18-28 inches in length, but can reach 37 inches. They are slender and ridged, growing in a distinctive "S" shape. Impala have a short coat with white undersides. Their upper torso is tan, with a darker saddle and three black stripes on the rump. The flanks also sport two black stripes, while the tail has one down the middle and the ear tips are black as well. Impala live for up to 15 years
