"Is of a greyish or ash colour, with large black ears, and a black spot round the eyes; straight black horns, slender and sharp-pointed, not three inches long, slightly annulated at the base : its height is about eighteen inches; and it is most elegantly formed : beneath each eye is a cavity that contains a strong-scented oily liquor, which smells somewhat like musk, and, when exposed to the air, becomes hard and black. It is the Guinea antelope of Mr. Pennant."
