Where do antelopes live?

Answer

Antelopes live in Africa, Asia and parts of the Americas. These deer-like animals have adapted to different habitats due to importation and can be found in grasslands, woodlands, forests, savannahs, mountains and marshes. The term "antelope" is a wide-encompassing term that describes all members of the Bovidae family that does not include sheep, goats, cattle, buffalo or bison.

There are 91 species of antelope in the world, most of them indigenous to Africa with a few species native to Russia and India. With the exception of the pronghorn antelope of North America, no antelope species is native to the Americas. However, other species of antelope were imported to the Americas for the purpose of exotic game hunting. Texas ranches host a vast majority of these imports; the state bears a close resemblance to the African plains and its climate is very hospitable to the antelope.

The habitats of the antelope are as varied as the different species. The antelope of the African savannahs are migratory animals, ever moving with the rain, while their woodland and forest-dwelling counterparts are sedentary, staying in one area. Antelope are usually herd animals and play an important role in the food chain in their native homelands.
