A circle of white hair surrounds the eye and extends as a white stripe to the snout. Only rams carry long horns up to 80 cm.

Ecology
Grant's gazelle form groups of up to 30 individuals. Where conditions suit them all year, both sexes are resident, adult rams defend their territories. Otherwise they tend to benomadic.

Conservation Status

IUCN Red List Category, ver 3.1:

- http://www.iucnredlist.org/apps/redlist/details/8971/0

Trend:
About 30% of the population occurs in protected areas. The largest surviving populations in this region occur in Omo-Mago-Munrle-Chew Bahir and Borana in Ethiopia. Most of these protected populations are in gradual decline. The status of the population in Boma N.P. (where numbers were estimated at about 3,000 in the southern section of the park in the 1970s and 1980s) in southern Sudan is not known.

European Collection Plan (2003): ...
RCP status: ...

Recommendations
It is of concern that its numbers appear to be in decline over large parts of its range and that populations which are known to be stable or increasing comprise only about 25 % of the species' total number.
