Chinkara Report

The hidden chinkara gazelle.

Today Joshua and Henry are creating a report on chinkara.

A chinkara is a type of deer that lives in the wild.
So read this report and tell me if this is interesting.  


A chinkara is a type of deer that can last without water for a long, long time. Another name for the Chinkara is a gazelle. The adult Chinkara stands about 65 cm tall and it weighs about 23 kgs.
A chinkara has a smooth reddish coat in the summer and in the colder months the chinkaras chest, belly and throat become a few shades lighter.


They live for 12 to 15 years but they normally get killed by other animals or they get taken to a zoo. The female only has one or two babies a year. Males compete for the rights of the baby. There is more men gazelle so men don’t always get a women.


They live in Plain grasslands, open jungles and tropical woodlands. There habitat is spread over different regions.
They also live in Deserts, Forests, Hot Deserts, Shrublands,  Tropical Dry forest and Tropical Dry Shrubland.


The Chinkara will eat Grasses, Many types of fruit, Green leaves and Buds of flowers in the wild. They class the chinkara as a vegetarian.
They will eat grubs if really hungry.


  • Stray dogs.
Stray dogs get into like a square with the chinkara in the middle then they all walk up on it.
  • Lions
Lions kill gazelles at night.
  • Tigers
They will stalk them at night.
  • Hyena
Hyenas kill baby gazelle. so it is easier to chase them down.
  • Cheetah
Cheetahs run them down and pick on the cubs.
  • Humans
Shoot them and catch them in nets and cages.


Did you know?

They can survive without water.
Poacher don’t get gazelle as much as stray dogs do.
Five to seven chinkara are injured daily.
They mate once a year and males compete for access to females.

Thanks for reading our report and I hope you learnt a bit too.
