Gazella bennetti fuscifrons

Gacela jabir, Gacela de Kennion (Sp), Kennion Gazelle (G), Gazelle de Kennion (F). Called jabir (or jabeer) in Farsi (Iran). Named for British Lt. Col. R. L. Kennion, its European discoverer. Sometimes called Baluchistan gazelle.

DESCRIPTION (male) Shoulder height 23-25 inches (58-64 cm). Weight 40-50 pounds (18-23 kg). In Iran, specimens from southern Khorasan are larger than those from Fars and Kerman in the south. Females are noticeably smaller than males.

Slightly smaller than either the Salt Range or christii races of Indian gazelle, but larger than the bennetti race. The sandy coat is rather long, especially in winter. Male horns average 9-11 inches (23-28 cm) in length, with 14-1/2 inches (36.8 cm) the longest of record (Rowland Ward, 1909). The horns are closer together at the base than in any race of Indian gazelle. The female's horns are much longer than in the Indian gazelle, being 70 percent as long as those of the male.

DISTRIBUTION Central and southern Iran, except for the Lut and Salt deserts, and southern Baluchistan west of the Kirthar Range in Pakistan, at elevations not exceeding 3,000 feet (900 m). Replaced by the goitered gazelle at higher elevations.
