The sable antelope is a large antelope that
inhabits wooded savanna in East and Southern Africa, from the south of Kenya to
South Africa, with a separated population in Angola.
Sable antelopes are herbivores. They are
specialized browsing animals that feed upon foliage, mid-length grasses, leaves,
and herbs, particularly those that grow on termite mounds. Tree leaves make up
90% of their diet. They are diurnal animals, meaning they are most active in
the daylight but less active during the hottest part of the day. Like other
bovids, they also have a ruminant digestive system. Because water is essential
to the sable antelope's survival, it travels every two to four days to drink at
water sources. The sable antelope presumably decreases its risk of being eaten
by predators by staying away from feeding areas with high numbers of other
grazers but at the cost of prolonged and strenuous journeys to water. The use
of specific water sources in particular regions is related to the presence of
calcium and magnesium salts in the water, allowing the antelope to consume
large amounts of minerals while meeting their water needs.
