The generuk according to MammalMAP
Also known as the Waller's gazelle, the gerenuk (Litocranius walleri), call the dry shrubland of East Africa home. The Somalian word ’Gerenuk’ means ‘Giraffe-necked’ – and it’s easy to see how these antelopes earned this name! Their long necks allow them to reach branches 6-8 ft. off the ground. They extend this reach even further by standing upright on their hind legs while feeding. The Gerenuk once had a wide distribution in Africa, but are currently thought to occur only in southern Djibouti, Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and North-eastern Tanzania.
