Genera

A grazing antelope is any of the species of antelope that make up the subfamily Hippotraginae or tribe Hippotragini[1] of the family Bovidae. As grazers, rather than browsers, the "Hippo" in Hippotraginae refers to the slightly horse-like characteristics of body size and proportions: long legs and a solid body with a relatively thick muscular neck.
