Klipspringer On The Serengeti
The klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus) is a small species of African antelope. The word klipspringer literally means "rock jumper" in Afrikaans. With a thick and dense, speckled "salt and pepper" patterned coat of an almost olive shade, klipspringers blend in well with the koppies (rock outcrops) on which they can usually be found. Reaching approximately 58 cm (23 in) at the shoulder, klipspringers are smaller than most other antelopes. They stand on the tips of their hooves.
