Sable antelope

Successful breeding

The sable antelope is very rare, so breeding the species is very important. At Knuthenborg Safaripark, breeding has been extremely successful for a number of years. Note the strong, curved horns with the characteristic perpendicular rings which can be seen in both the male and female. The cow is considerably lighter than the completely black bull.
