Dorcas Gazelles
By Sheri Skelton
  

1     The Sahara Desert is very hot and very dry. Dorcas gazelles are well-suited to live there. They aren't bothered by very hot temperatures. These animals also don't need to drink water to survive. They can survive by getting moisture from the plants they eat. Dorcas gazelles like the leaves and flowers of acacia trees. Sometimes they stand on their back legs to reach the leaves.
 
2     Dorcas gazelles are not very big animals. The average size of a Dorcas gazelle is two feet tall, and the average weight is about 35 pounds. Dorcas gazelles usually have pale beige coats with white bellies. Dorcas gazelles have long ears. They also have long, curved horns.
