Speke's Gazelle (Gazella spekei) is the smallest of the gazelle species. Partially sympatric with G. gazella pelzini, it is confined to the horn of Africa where it inhabits stony brush, grass steppes, and semi deserts (Kingdom 1982, 1997). This species has been sometimes regarded as a subspecies of G. gazella though this is now widely disregarded (Groves 1969). Severe habitat fragmentation means it is now impossible to assess the natural migratory or nomadic patterns of G. spekei. (East 1996).
