July 2020: Gerenuk

Gerenuk (Litocranius walleri)

Throughout the month of July 2020, FaunaFocus will be featuring the gerenuk!

The gerenuk is endemic to Africa and is also known as the “giraffe gazelle” because of its distinctive, long neck and legs. It uses these lengthy appendages to forage tall herbaceous and succulent plants that most other antelopes can’t reach and is thus one of the most exclusive browsers.



Create art inspired by the gerenuk and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!

Event Date Time (CDT)
Free-For-All: Deadline July 28 12:00 pm
Free-For-All: Livestream July 29 7:00 pm
