Tags: edmi


The edmi, also known as the mountain gazelle, lives in mixed-sex herds of up to forty individuals. They roam their arid habitat eating almost anything green. In mid-winter, the males establish territories that they defend from rivals. The male is generally larger than the female and has S-shaped horns more than twice as big. Like all gazelles, the edmi is a slender, graceful animal with an ability to run at great speeds. Hunted for sport, the population of edmi is now greatly diminished and its range is fragmented.
