The impala is a medium-sized African antelope. It is the type species of the genus ''Aepyceros'' and belongs to the family Bovidae. It was first described by German zoologist Martin Hinrich Carl Lichtenstein in 1812. Two subspecies of the impala have been recognised: the common impala and the black-faced . They are typically between 120–160 cm long. Males stand up to approximately 75–92 cm at the shoulder and weigh 53–76 kg , while females are 70–85 cm and 40–53 kg.. more
