Heuglin's gazelle or Eritrean gazelle (Eudorcas tilonura) is a species of gazelle found east of the river Nile in Sudan, Eritrea and Ethiopia.[1]

Taxonomy[edit]

There is little consensus on the taxonomic status of the Heuglin's gazelle. This species is considered a subspecies of Red-fronted gazelle (E. rufifrons), by some authors such as Peter Grubb, and by some such as Groves as distinct species.[1]
