Neumann’s gazelle or Erlanger’s gazelle (Gazella erlangeri) is a small dark gazelle with a stout body and short legs. It is described from Saudi Arabia and Yemen.[1]

It is considered a threatened species, although no recent information is available on wild populations. Some sources consider it a subspecies of the mountain gazelle (Gazella gazella).[2]
