Meet the Sables
Sables are antelopes that natively inhabit the savanna in eastern and southern Africa. They typically have a compact and robust build, with a thick neck and tough skin.
About the Sable
Sables are an antelope species that is most active during the day, though they prefer to rest during the hottest part of the day. They prefer to live in the savanna grasslands and woodlands throughout the dry season. When confronted by predators, Sables confront their attackers and tend to fight back aggressively.
