Springbok stand 75 - 80 cm / 29 - 32 inch at the shoulder and have a mass of 32 - 36 kg / 70 - 80 lb.. They are medium-sized, graceful animals with a bright cinnamon-brown coat and a distinct marking. They have a peculiar fold of skin on their back. The horns are heavily ridged, lyrate, sloping slightly backwards, to diverge outwards and curve sharply inwards in a hook at their tips.
Bright reddish to yellowish-brown, broad dark, chocolate-brown horizontal band, which extends from the upper parts of the forelegs to the hip, separating the upper parts from the pure white under parts. The face is white with a dark brown line from in front of the eyes to the angle of mouth. Their inner thighs are pure white.
Distributed all over Namibia, except in the north-east.
Open savannah, wide open plains.
