The most gracious
This well-shaped young guy is a representative of the most common African antelope species called impala. Take a better look at his slim behind. No wonder that impala antelope was called “the McDonald’s of the bush”, as the M-shaped mark on its behind reminds urban people of the fast food chain left back somewhere in civilization. Maybe these models deliberately work for the restaurant’s PR campaign?

The tiniest one
Thanos is an orphaned baby antelope raised by keepers at Chester Zoo. He is a Kirk's dik-dik, a small antelope native to Eastern Africa. This little thing will never grow higher than 40 cm (16 in), as this species of antelope is one of the smallest in the world. Officials say that Thanos “may be tiny, but he is certainly making a big impression on everyone at the zoo!”

The strongest thing
Depicted mother and a child are kudu antelopes, who are considered to be one of the strongest among antelopes. They are also great runners and have an excellent hearing to protect them from any potential danger.

The most handsome
The cute newborn calf of a sable antelope doesn’t know yet, that from a clumsy sandy-brown baby he will soon turn into a gorges antelope, with beautiful curved horns and rich chestnut-brown coating. Just like his caring mother.

The magical one
The horns of gemsbok are considered to have magical features in many cultures. Even mythical unicorns used to have this kind of horns. These little models are posing with their stunning parents, dreaming of having at least one of those magnificent horns.

The funny one
Little saiga antelopes have funny noses. Though, when they grow up, the noses will become even funnier and start to hang down as trunks. Saigas are inhabitants of Eurasian steppe zone and lately suffered from a mysterious contagious disease in the lands of Kazakhstan.

XL size African
Waterbuck is a robust XL size model, who feels very comfortable in his natural shape. And yes, he does drink a lot of water, as the name states.

The largest one
Giant Eland is the largest antelope model, found in savanna, grassland, woodlands and glades. Also, this guy has another significant record, as he is the highest jumper. When he grows up, he will make 1.5 m (4.9 feet) up, which is not that bad for an animal with about 900 kg (2000 lbs) weight.

The bluest antelope
And finally nilgai or blue bull, the largest Asian antelope. This nilgai family is patiently waiting until the photographer takes his great shot to disappear in the in the woods. Indian people referred to nilgai as a cow, considering it a holy and divine creature.
