Quick Reference

Jumping high into the air several times in succession while running, a behaviour practised by springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) on the African grasslands, perhaps as a warning to a predator that its presence has been noticed and it should therefore abandon its pursuit since the springbok will escape. See also stotting.
