The Thomson's gazelle migrates between the African forests and the steppe. After the rains, it feeds on the fresh green grasses of the Serengeti Plain. Though usually found in herds of 20, these gazelle mass in the thousands for up to a few days for breeding. Its S-shaped horns offer some protection from predators, but its real defense is to flee. To confuse their enemies and to warn the herd, Thomson's gazelles bounce high into the air with their legs stretched down stiffly when alarmed. This behavior is called "stotting" or "pronking."
