Here's a wonderful example of how well these antalopes can blend into their envirionment. They are Impala (no not the Chevy). See if you can find them all. Let me know your guess.

One of the most beautiful of the antalope family is the Sable Antalope. That's a female in the back, a young in the middle with the male in the foreground. His magnificent well curved horns tell us he is an older animal.

This beautiful animal is the Oryx, or Gemsbok as he is known as in southern Africa.

As boldly marked as the Oryx is you can see how it can become almost invisible in the bush.
