Some (shy) giraffe (a lot of the animals in Mokala seemed quite scared of cars)

Hi,

This antelope was seen at Mokala in December. Can someone please tell me what it is. Apologies for the poor quality pic but it was very far away.

Someone suggested it was a black springbok. Could that be the correct ID?

Thanks

It certainly looks like one.

The black sprinbok is actually a normal springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) which has been bred into a black and a white variety. So it is not a separate (sub-) species.
Better not google it, most of the pages you find are hunting ones.
