The antelopes themselves live in a wide variety of habitats, most of the time though they are found in the forest. Although there are some species that have adapted to the mountainous areas. And believe it or not, there are species that live in the hot, such as the desert, and then there are some species that live in cold areas. And a few that are in swamp areas.

Sadly though, about 15 of the 90 total different antelope species are in the endangered list.
