Oreotragus oreotragus

The Klipspringer has a head & body length of 30 to 45 inches. The tail length is 2 to 5 inches, with shoulder height of 18 to 24 inches and horns of 3 to 6 inches. Klipspringers weigh between 17.5 to 39.5 pounds. The coat has a yellowish olive gloss, speckled with yellow and brown or orange, shading to white below. The coat harmonizes with the background of rocks. The texture of the coat has been variously described as mosslike and grasslike. The thick, pithy hair lies like a mat on the body to cushion the animal against bumps and bruises in its rocky environment. Females have four mammae. Usually only males have horns.
