Check your vigilance. This photo was taken in the national park in South Africa, where the antelope simply merged with the terrain. Can you find it? Good luck! It is useful to you exactly.
Look very carefully, do not try to find a large antelope. In this photo from your eyes hid a small antelope, with a gray stripe on the back.
It is located in the upper part of the photo in the middle. Look closely and you’ll see it. This parody of antelope in Africa called the “Alpine jumper.” This is an appropriate nickname for the horses, which live in mountainous areas, but not for our little friend who lives in South Africa.
