The Impala is a medium sized antelope found in eastern and southern Africa. They are about the size of a deer, with reddish brown fur, and can weigh up to 250 pounds. Impalas are herbivores, and eat a variety of plants, including leaves, shoots, flowers, fruits and seeds.

Impalas are very social animals, living in herds of up to 50 individuals. They are very agile, and can run up to 40 miles per hour. Impalas use their speed and agility to escape predators, such as lions and leopards. They also have excellent vision and hearing which help them detect predators from a distance.

Impalas are considered to be a very important part of the ecosystem, and play an important role in dispersing seeds and maintaining the health of the grasslands.
