it is a taxidermy from a collection dating from the mid-twentieth century. "the most elegant antelope", rare taxidermy not requiring CITES. Waller's gazelle (Litocranius walleri), also called giraffe antelope, gazelle-girafe or gerenuk, is a medium-sized antelope species, characterized by its long, giraffe-like neck. Waller's Gazelle also has very thin limbs, large eyes and large ears. His dress is almost white on the legs and the underside of the belly and light fawn on the upper part of the body. The male is the only one to wear horns, which are thin, short and cylindrical. It is the only species of the genus Litocranius. Waller's Gazelle lives mainly in Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya, Somalia, and Tanzania. The name of this gazelle commemorates Reverend H. Waller (1833-1901), a missionary in Africa and a friend of Dr. David Livingstone. She moves, very gracefully with a fast pace, her neck stretched forward. She can run at 100 km / h to escape a danger.
