An impala (Aepyceros melampus Greek aipos "high" ceros "horn" + melas "black" pous "foot") is a medium-sized African antelope. The name impala comes from the Zulu language. They are found in savannas and thick bushveld in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, northern Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, southern Angola, northeastern South Africa and Uganda (the source of that country's capital city's name - Kampala).

Ecology

Impala are among the dominant species in many savannas. They can adapt to different environment by being grazers in some areas and browsers in others. They graze when the grass is green and growing and browse at other times. They will browse on formcsgaybs, shoots, bacon, seedpods and foliage. This article is about grassland. ...


Herds will use specific areas for their excrement. Impala are active during both day and night and are dependent on water. A herd is normally an indicator of water close by. Impala can thrive in areas where pure grazers can not survive. Feces (also spelled faeces or fæces) are the waste products from the digestive tract expelled through the anus during defecation. ...

When frightened or startled the whole impala herd starts leaping about in order to confuse their predator. They can jump distances more than 9 meters (30 feet) and 2.5 meters (8 feet) high. Leopards, cheetah, Nile crocodiles, lions, spotted hyenas and wild dogs prey on impala.

When caught by a predator, Impalas sometimes as a last ditch play dead. This sometimes confuses the predator and it gives up on strangling and if then the predator moves off a bit, the Impala will immediately get up and run away. This opportunity works best when an impala is brought down by one predator but another comes to claim the kill and the two engage in a short dispute, which often removes attention from the impala.


High Speed Chase with Cheetahs

Even though they are hunted by lions and leopards, they real danger in terms of a speed chase are cheetahs only, since impalas easily outrun their other predators (Leopards and Lions often resort to stealth instead of speed to catch an Impala).


An adult impala can outrun a cheetah if the cheetah isn't within 30 yards as it begins its sprint. This is also a reason why cheetahs generally prefer to pursue fawns or juveniles, which are slower than the adults. During a pursuit, impalas never run in a straight line. Instead, an impala will make rapid turns to juke its pursuer, since they turn more speedily than cheetahs. Impalas also have more stamina than cheetahs. A cheetah is faster but only maintains its sprint speed for about 1500 meters. An impala can easily maintain speed for about 2000-2500 meters.


In escaping cheetahs, adults escape about 50% of the time. Fawns however succeed 20% of the time only.


Social structure and reproduction

Females and young form herds of up to two hundred individuals. When food is plentiful, adult males will establish territories and round up any female herd that enter their grounds and will chase away bachelor males that follow. They will even chase away recently weaned males. A male impala tries to prevent any female from leaving is territory. During the dry seasons, territories are abandoned as herds must travel farther to find food. Large, mixed tranquil herds of females and males form.


Young male impala who have been made to leave their previous herd form bachelor herds of around thirty individuals. Males that are able to dominate their herd are contenders for assuming control of their territory.

The breeding season of impala, also called rutting, begins toward the end of the wet season in May. The entire affair typically lasts approximately three weeks. While young are born after seven months, the mother has the ability to prolong giving birth for an additional month if conditions are harsh. When giving birth a female impala will isolate herself from the herd despite numerous attempts by the male to keep her in his territory. The impala mother will keep the fawn in an isolated spot for a few days or even leave it lying out in hiding for a couple days, weeks, or more before returning to the herd. There the fawn will join a nursery group and will go to its mother only to nurse and when predators are near. Fawns are suckled for 4 to 6 months. Males who mature are forced out of the group and will join bachelor herds.

Taxonomy

In the past, taxonomists have put the impala in the same tribe as gazelles, kobs and hartebeests. However it was found that the impala was so different from any of these tribes that it was put in its own tribe, Aepycerotini respectively. Taxonomy (from Greek ταξινομία from the words taxis = order and nomos = law) may refer to either a hierarchical classification of things, or the principles underlying the classification. ...
