The edmi, also known as the mountain gazelle, lives in mixed-sex herds of up to forty individuals.
They roam their arid habitat eating almost anything green.
In mid-winter, the males establish territories that they defend from rivals.
The male is generally larger than the female and has S-shaped horns more than twice as big.
Like all gazelles, the edmi is a slender, graceful animal with an ability to run at great speeds.
Hunted for sport, the population of edmi is now greatly diminished and its range is fragmented.
