Abstract

The oribi (Bovidae: Antilopinae: Ourebiini: Ourebia ourebi [Zimmermann, 1783 ]) is a small antelope distributed widely across open woody grasslands of sub‐Saharan Africa (Goldspink, Holland, Sweet, & Stewart, 2002 ), especially in hilly open‐broadleaf savanna and primarily feeds on herbaceous vegetation (Monfort & Monfort, 1974 ). The species lives singly or in small groups with multiple males, yet long‐term pairing is frequently low (Adamczak & Dunbar, 2008 ; Arcese, 1994 ; Arcese, Jongejan, & Sinclair, 1995 ; Jongejan, Arcese, & Sinclair, 1991 ). Oribi are readily identifiable with a tan coat and whitish underbelly, large ears, a conspicuous black‐coloured preorbital glandular spot below the ear, long neck and long legs (Foley et al., 2014 ; Kingdon et al., 2013 ). Up to 13 subspecies have been described with one subspecies found in Serengeti National Park: O. ourebi cottoni .
