The Thomson’s gazelle is one of the best known gazelles and is named after Joseph Thomson. They can run as fast as 80 km/h or say 50 mph. They are said to be long distance runners, and can escape from animals like cheetah. Their speed is generally due to their bounding leaps. They are generally commonly found in East Africa.
