About the Springbok

Springboks are very fast animals, achieving speeds up to 55 miles per hour, though they still cannot outrun a determined cheetah. The name Sprinkbox derives from Afrikaans words that mean "jump" and "antelope". They have all the physical characteristics of an antelope, with a long body, slender legs, big hears, and huge, ringed horns.
