The dama gazelle, addra gazelle, or mhorr gazelle (Nanger dama, formerly Gazella dama) is a species of gazelle that lives in Africa in the Sahara desert and the Sahel. This critically endangered species has disappeared from most of its former range due to overhunting and habitat loss. Natural populations only remain in Chad, Mali, and Niger. The dama gazelle is white with a tannish-brown head and neck. Both sexes usually have medium-length ringed horns curved like an “S”. The gazelles’ heads are small with narrow muzzles, their eyes are relatively large, and they have longer necks and legs than most gazelles. These animals are between 35 and 47 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh between 77 and 165 pounds. Damas are considered the largest type of gazelle.
