Here are those magnificent S-shaped horns of the male Thomson's Gazelle. In the female, they are short and pencil-thin. The "Tommy" male uses a pair of preorbital scent glands to advertise himself. This gazelle is a mixed feeder. It grazes when grass is green and supplements its diet with green browse more and more as the grass deteriorates in the dry season.
