You can recognize the Thompson gazelle by its distinctive coat color with black and white stripes on the its belly and face. Most striking, however, are its magnificent, curved horns. The Thompson gazelle gazes watchfully over the wide Serengeti desert. Is there a cheetah hiding in the grass? It would rather not get in its way!
Is that a rustling in the bushes? The pretty Thompson gazelle carefully observes its surroundings. There might be a cheetah hiding somewhere. The gazelle isn’t interested in ending up as that cat’s breakfast! Unfortunately, its long, twisted horns are of little use against the cheetah. The best mode of action is to run away, dodging left and right like a pro. Or to stays put, where the grass is low and it has a good overview. Actually, the living room carpet is a pretty safe bet, too!
