The SABLE ANTELOPE,  Hippotragus niger, is native to bush and wooded savanna of southern and south-eastern Africa. There are four subspecies which vary in size and coat colour. Adult males of the nominal subspecies have an almost black coat, hence the name "niger"; females and juveniles are more chestnut.
