(W. Rothschild, 1903)
The Mongalla gazelle (Eudorcas albonotata) is a species of gazelle found in the floodplain and savanna of southeastern Sudan. It was formerly treated as a subspecies of the well-known Thomson's gazelle. Like the Thomson's gazelle, it follows an annual migratory cycle.
The Mongalla gazelle is rather safe from extinction compared to other species, due to its harsh habitat, which makes exploitation and poaching difficult. Though it has a very narrow range, being restricted to southeastern Sudan, it exists in high densities and currently 100,000 to 278,000 individuals are left in the wild.
