Antelopes were a species of a herd animal.[1]

Behavior[]

Antelopes would normally flee from danger, but attack if cornered.[1]

Species[]

Gazelle
A species of antelope that were predominant in the region of Anauroch,[3] parts of Zakhara,[4] such as around the Oasis of the Golden Falcon,[5] and on the Malatran Plateau they could be found in the Rayana Savannah and the Yaku Plains.[6] In Kara-Tur they could be found in its steppelands.[7]
Verrick

Ecology[]

Habitats[]

Antelopes were known to inhabit much of the region of Anauroch, especially the Fallen Giant Rift,[9][10] the Sword, and Saiyaddar.[11] In West Faerûn, they could be found in the hilly grasslands surrounding the city-state of Cursrah.[12]

Beyond Faerûn, they inhabited the savannahs of Chult, with some smaller species inhabiting the region's jungles.[13] They could also be found on the lowest levels of the Katakoro Plateau,[14] on the Malatran Plateau,[15] the Pasocada Basin of Maztica,[16] and in the Zakhara region's Crowded Sea, on the island chain of Nada al-Hazan.[17]

Relationships[]

Antelopes were one of the primary animals hunted by wemics.[18] They were also commonly the prey of cheetahs, leopards, wild dogs, and jungle giants.[19]

Hybsils were often on good terms with antelopes.[20]
