Schleich Thomson's Gazelle #14861 Review:The most distinctive features of this model are its curved horns and multi-colored body. The curves of the horns are pleasing, while the flat grey paint could benefit from more intricate detailing. The variety of colors on the body is attractive, but could be enhanced with better paint application. The texture of the model is also quite smooth - more hair texture is desired. Overall a fine model from Schleich in 2023.

The Thomson's Gazelle is an herbivore, primarily eating grasses and other vegetation. They travel in herds of up to several hundred individuals, although some herds may be as small as a few dozen. They are very social animals, often engaging in activities such as grooming and playing together.
The gazelle is an important prey species for a variety of predators, including cheetahs, leopards, lions, and hyenas. As a result, they have had to evolve a number of evasive behaviors, including the ability to quickly change direction while running and the ability to leap in the air to avoid predators.
