  1. Dorothy ? 🙂 No, I’m afraid I have no idea. But certainly quite beautiful.

    1. It’s a Gerenuk, found in Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. Member of the antelope clan, only the males have horns. I love the impala coloring, the Yoda face.

  2. It’s a Gerenuk. Cute fellow with a long neck. Isn’t is an off shoot of an impala and something else?

    1. Yes, one of the antelope clan, like the impala, with impala coloring and a Yoda face!

  3. A periscope with legs and lovely ears…a gerenuk!

    1. Yes! And I love its Yoda face.

    1. Hi Matthew – it’s a gerenuk, found in Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. Member of the antelope clan, only the males have horns. Love its Yoda face.
