We just learned about the Gazelle.

Another type of antelope is the impala.

It is very good at jumping!
It can jump 9 feet in the air, taller than any person!
And it can jump more than 33 feet forward, about as long as two cars!

When a group of impalas gets scared by another animal that is attacking,
they will all start jumping around in the air to try and confuse their attacker.
