Oribi in Swahili: taya (Ourebia aurebi)

Shoulder height: 20 cm; weight: 12 kg. This widespread but uncommon grassland antelope looks much like a steenbok but stands about 10 cm higher at the Shoulder and has an altogether more upright bearing. It might be seen in almost any grassy habitat, usually in groups of two or three, but isnot very common anywhere in Tanzania.
