Caption: Impala (Aepyceros melampus). Only the male has the impressive curved horns, seen here, which are used in displays and fights with rivals. This is a subadult, which is not yet sexually mature. Impala inhabit the plains and forest edges of eastern Africa, gathering in herds of up to 200 individuals. Herds comprise a dominant male, females and offspring. Other males form a bachelor herd, and may try to infiltrate a dominant male's harem. Impala are renowned for their leaping when startled or attacked. They can jump up to three metres into the air. The jumps are designed to confuse predators. Photographed in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
