Abstract:
Representations of animal behaviour in ancient Egyptian art based on ancient Egyptian observations are closely related to the natural habitats of these animals. The ancient Egyptians artists represented two species of gazelle genus in ancient scenes over their tombs walls; they are Dorcas gazelle, and Sommering gazelle. Both of two kinds are displayed in different behaviours such as: LOCOMOTOR, comfort behaviour, sexual behaviour, hunting behaviour "predation and escape from danger", in addition to parental behaviour.
