Procapra is a genus of Asian gazelles, including three living species:
- Mongolian gazelle Procapra gutturosa
- Tibetan gazelle Procapra picticaudata
- Przewalski's gazelle Procapra przewalskii
The oldest fossils belonging to the genus Procapra date from the late Pliocene or early Pleistocene of central Asia, which was wetter and warmer then than now. The genus apparently evolved from animals similar to the Pliocene gazelle Gazella sinensis, and is known to have been hunted by early Neolithic humans at Lake Qinghai in China.
