The dibatag (Ammodorcas clarkei), or Clarke's gazelle, is an antelope found in the sandy grasslands of Ethiopiamarker and Somaliamarker. Not a true gazelle, it is similarly marked, with a long, furry black tail which is raised in flight. This gave rise to its name, which means "erect tail" in Somali.

The dibatag is listed by the IUCN as "vulnerable" to extinction due to hunting and human disturbance (including war). There are a few thousand individuals left with no captive population.

Male dibatags weigh between 28 to 35 kilograms, and females range from 22 to 29 kilograms.
