ABout Addra (Dama) Gazelle

ADDRA GAZELLE LIVE IN THE SAHARA DESERT REGIONS OF NORTHERN AFRICA IN LARGE HERDS. WELL ADAPTED TO THE HARSH ENVIRONMENTS, ADDRA GAZELLE CAN SURVIVE WITH MINIMAL WATER SOURCES, PULLING WATER FROM THE GRASSES AND WOODY BUSHES THEY EAT.

Addra gazelles may stand on their hind legs to eat from trees and other plants as high as six feet from the ground. Also known as the Dama gazelle, the Addra is the largest of gazelles and the most endangered of the gazelle species.
