Springbok defecating (Antidorcus marsupialis). During the mating season male springbok are fiercely territorial. They mark their territory by defecating and urinating and attract females by making a vibrating sound. Springbok are common, but they are dependent on conservation areas for their current distribution. They are characterised by their habit of repetitively leaping into the air. This behaviour is known as pronking. Photographed in Namibia, Africa.
