The Oribi, scientifically known as Ourebia ourebi, is a small antelope native to various parts of sub-Saharan Africa. It's characterized by its slender build, long neck, and large ears.
Oribis inhabit the grasslands and open savannahs of sub-Saharan Africa, with populations in countries ranging from Senegal in the west to Ethiopia in the east and down to South Africa.
Oribis possess sharp, straight horns, which are usually found only in males. These horns can be up to 18cm long. Their large eyes and ears provide them with excellent sight and hearing, essential for detecting predators.
Oribis are primarily grazers, feeding on grass. They are selective feeders, often choosing the fresher, younger grass shoots.
They are typically seen in pairs or small family groups, though solitary individuals aren't uncommon. Oribis are also known for their territorial nature, with males marking territories with preorbital gland secretions.
Males court females by performing a stiff-legged jump, showcasing their fitness. This display, coupled with vocalizations, is a part of their mating ritual.
Their small size makes them a target for various predators, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and wild dogs. Habitat loss due to agriculture and overgrazing is also a significant threat.
While the Oribi is not classified as endangered, certain populations are decreasing due to habitat fragmentation, hunting, and other anthropogenic factors.
In some African countries, hunting Oribi is allowed with the appropriate permits. However, it's crucial to ensure sustainable hunting practices and to hunt only in areas where it's legally permitted.
