What do Sable look like?

Sable Antelope are known for their beautiful appearance. They have a glossy black-brown coat, as well as a white underbelly and facial markings. Males have long horns that can grow up to 60 inches, and females horns are slightly smaller. Sables have large bodies with males weighing from 440 to 595 pounds. Once again, females are slightly smaller. 

Sable Antelope Habitat:

Sable inhabit a variety of habitats, including open woodlands, grasslands, and savannas with scattered trees and shrubs. They are commonly found in areas with plenty of grass cover and easy access to water sources. 

Sable Antelope Diet:

Sable antelopes are primarily grazers, feeding on grasses, herbs, wild berries, pine nuts, and shrubs. They will also eat hares and other small mammals. 

Sable Antelope Behavior:

Sable are generally solitary animals, but herds may form. Outside of breeding season, adult males will travel in bachelor herds. They are diurnal and most active during the early morning and late afternoon, resting in the heat of the day. 

Sable Antelope Reproduction:

Sable antelope breeding is seasonal and births occur in the rainy season. Mating peaks in June, and after a gestation period of 9 months the female will give birth to a single calf.
