Gazella atlantica Bourguinat

Atlantic Gazelle (Gazella atlantica)

This North African species was described in 1870 based on fossil remains that were dated to the Upper Pleistocene, however, some remains apparently turned out to be much younger, thus the species might have survived until about 3000 years BP..


I was unfortunately unable to find any source for that assumption.
