The Antilopines are even-toed ungulates belong to the family Bovidae. The members of Antilopini (gazelles, blackbucks, springboks, gerenuks, dibatags, and Central Asian gazelles) are often referred to as true antelopes, and are usually classified as the only living representatives of the Antilopinae. True antelopes occur in much of Africa and Asia, with the highest concentration of species occurring in East Africa in Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, and Tanzania. The saigas and Tibetan antelopes are related to true antelopes (Antilopinae) and sheep and goats (Caprinae), but are often placed in their own subfamily, Saiginae. These animals inhabit much of central and western Asia. The dwarf antelopes are sometimes placed in a separate subfamily, Neotraginae, and live entirely in sub-Saharan Africa. The Antilopinae are a subfamily of Bovidae that roam the East African savannas and deserts and they have acclimated to possess wider insertion muscles to enable them to avoid predators in the open savanna.
