A gazelle is an antelope of the genusGazella. Gazelles are known as swift animals; they are able to reach high speeds for long periods of time. Gazelles are mostly found in the grasslands and savannas of Africa, but also in south-west Asia. They live in large herds and eat grass.
A recognizable example of the gazelle is Thomson's Gazelle (Gazella thomsonii), which is around 60 to 90 cm in height at the shoulder and is coloured brown and white with a distinguishing black stripe (as in the picture on the right). The males have long, often curved, horns. Tommies, as they are familiarly called, exhibit a distinctive behaviour of stotting (that is running slowly and jumping high before fleeing) when they are threatened by predators such as lions or cheetahs. This is a primary piece of evidence for the handicap theory advanced by Amotz Zahavi in the study of animal communication and behaviour.
With thousands of employees, Gazelle is committed to providing a safe and comfortable working environment.
In 2000, Gazelle became the first hat and bag manufacturer in this field to be awarded SA8000 accreditation by Bureau Veritas Quality International, BVQI is a recognized international certification body in France.
Gazelle works with you to establish the most effective pricing program available.
