Impala (Aepyceros melampus) Skull Cap, South Africa
The impala is a medium-sized antelope found in eastern and Southern Africa. The sole member of the Genus Aepyceros, it was first described by German zoologist Martin Hinrich Carl Lichtenstein in 1812.
Active mainly during the day, the impala may be gregarious or territorial depending upon the climate and geography. Three distinct social groups can be observed: the territorial males, bachelor herds and female herds. The impala is known for two characteristic leaps that constitute an anti predator strategy. Browsers as well as grazers, impala feed on monocots, dicots, forbs, fruits, and acacia pods (whenever available).
