    The dama gazelle is the largest gazelle.  Damas are found in Saharan Africa and typically travel in groups of 15 to 20 gazelles.  They travel a lot and typically move from the Northern Sahara region to Sahel region, depending on the weather. 

    The dama’s horns can be up to 14 inches long, although the female typically has shorter horns than the male. 

    Although damas are desert animals, they need more water than other desert animals.  They typically eat acacia and bush leaves for nourishment in addition to a range of different grasses found in the desert. 

    Damas are fairly docile although the males do become territorial when they are mating.
