Sable antelopes are found in the savannahs of Eastern and Southern Africa, particularly Kenya and South Africa with a separate population in Angola. They are herbivores, eating trees, grasses and herbs. They are diurnal but tend to be less active during the heat of the day.
Young males are exiled from the herd at around age 3 and form “bachelor groups” of around 12 creatures. As the overall herd grows, smaller groups of female antelopes and their young are splintered off into new herds. The first male to join the new splinter group becomes the dominant male for that emerging herd; there doesn’t seem to be the same fighting for rank as with other species, just whoever gets to the job first.
