"Two by Two!"
The young Grant's Gazelle is a "hider" and has a concealment period of about 4-6 weeks. It then joins a peer group, but the bond with the mother will last until adolescence. Jackals are the Grant's most frequent predator and almost always on concealed fawns. The Grant mother is large enough to protect against one jackal, but not against 2. Jackals tend to hunt in pairs during their own breeding season which corresponds with peak Gazelle births.
