Springbuck / Springbok

The Springbuck is brown and white antelope-gazelle found in the South Western parts of Africa. Before the 1994 democratic elections in South Africa it was one of their national emblems. The South African rugby team still uses it as part of their emblem and are still recognised all over the world as the Springboks. The marsupialis epiphet derives its name from the pocket like skin flap that runs along the middle of its back from the tail onwards. Male animals trying to show their strength or to attract mates will go on a stiff-legged trot, while jumping in the air with and arched back and lifting the flap along its back. This ritual is known as stotting or pronking in the Afrikaans language.
