Impala rams average 140 pounds while the ewes average 100 pounds and have no horns.

Impala herds consist either of ewes with only one adult ram who remains with the ewes and keeps all other rams out or bachelor herds of rams only.

The Impala's scent gland is a black patch on the lower hind leg.

Teeth are used to comb hair to remove dead skin and any bugs from their hide giving their sleek shiny appearance.

Impalas can jump over 10 feet high to escape predators.

They live in both bush and plains and graze in the open in early morning, night and evening.

When hunting Impala shots are mostly taken at 100-200 yards.

They eat leaves ( browse ) and  grass and drink water daily.
