Most have golden brown upper parts, white undersides, and curved horns with rings. Both the females and males grow horns. To survive in the wide open grasslands where they live, the Thomson’s gazelle needs to be vigilant at all times. Although they do lie down to sleep, they will sleep for no more than an hour a day altogether, in short bursts of five minutes or less.
