Heuglin's gazelle (Eudorcas tilonura), also known as the Eritrean gazelle, is a species of gazelle found east of the Nile River in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Sudan. It was considered a subspecies of the red-fronted gazelle (E. rufifrons) or conspecific with Thomson's gazelle (E. thomsonii) and Mongalla gazelle (E. albonotata) by some authors in the past. This small gazelle stands nearly 67 cm (26 in) at the shoulder and weighs between 15 and 35 kg (33 and 77 lb). The coat is dark reddish brown with a dark reddish stripe on the flanks, except for the underparts and the rump which are white. Horns, present in both sexes, measure 15 to 35 cm (5.9 to 13.8 in) in length.

  • Gazelopka nubijska, dawniej: gazela erytrejska (Eudorcas rufifrons tilonura) – podgatunek , czasami klasyfikowana jako odrębny gatunek. Występuje w Etiopii. Żyje stadnie na terenach wyżynnych odżywiając się roślinnością. Ubarwienie sierści jest brązowopiaskowe, na bokach ciała przebiega ciemna smuga, spód ciała jaśniejszy. Rogi wyrastają u obojga płci dorastając do 30 cm długości. W kłębie dorasta do 60 cm, długość ciała wynosi ok. 70 cm.

  • Gazelopka nubijska, dawniej: gazela erytrejska (Eudorcas rufifrons tilonura) – podgatunek , czasami klasyfikowana jako odrębny gatunek. Występuje w Etiopii. Żyje stadnie na terenach wyżynnych odżywiając się roślinnością. Ubarwienie sierści jest brązowopiaskowe, na bokach ciała przebiega ciemna smuga, spód ciała jaśniejszy. Rogi wyrastają u obojga płci dorastając do 30 cm długości. W kłębie dorasta do 60 cm, długość ciała wynosi ok. 70 cm. Haltenorth (1963) uznał gazelopkę nubijską za odrębny gatunek, jednak badania Gentry (1972) nie potwierdziły tego. Groves najpierw (1969) zaliczył ją jako podgatunek gazeli edmi, ale w 1975 wycofał się z tego stanowiska.
  • Heuglin's gazelle (Eudorcas tilonura), also known as the Eritrean gazelle, is a species of gazelle found east of the Nile River in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Sudan. It was considered a subspecies of the red-fronted gazelle (E. rufifrons) or conspecific with Thomson's gazelle (E. thomsonii) and Mongalla gazelle (E. albonotata) by some authors in the past. This small gazelle stands nearly 67 cm (26 in) at the shoulder and weighs between 15 and 35 kg (33 and 77 lb). The coat is dark reddish brown with a dark reddish stripe on the flanks, except for the underparts and the rump which are white. Horns, present in both sexes, measure 15 to 35 cm (5.9 to 13.8 in) in length. Little is known about the ecology and behaviour of Heuglin's gazelles; they typically remain solitary or form groups of two to four. Herbivores, these gazelles possibly browse as well as graze. Gestation lasts nearly six months, after which probably a single calf is born. Heuglin's gazelles inhabit open areas such as steppes, dry grasslands and thorn bushlands up to an elevation of 1,400 m (4,600 ft). Habitat loss and illegal hunting for meat are major threats to the survival of these gazelles. Populations might have fallen by 20% in roughly nine years after 2008; as of 2016, only 2,500 to 3,500 individuals remain in small fragmented groups, with fewer than 2,500 adults. Heuglin's gazelle is classified as Endangered on the IUCN Red List.
