General

The Sudan Oribi is the smallest true grazer amongst the antelope. Thankfully you can see them in relatively great numbers in National Park Murchison Falls in Uganda.


Interesting facts

- Males use glands near the eyes to mark their territories.

- Oribi hides from the predators in the tall grass. When predators approach close enough, the Oribi suddenly jumps out of its hiding place and tries to escape in a series of vertical leaps. This unusual jumping technique (with arched back and stiff legs) is known as "stotting".

- Family members communicate with a soft whistling sound, and express alarm with a loud whistle.
