Best Answer

South Africa's 'national' animal is the Springbok, a type of long-horned antelope capable of great speed. This is to South Africa as the kangaroo is to Australia, and the nickname of the South African rugby team is the 'Springboks'. However, other animals associated with South Africa include the aardvaark (a pig-like animal that feeds on insects), and also animals that exist elsewhere on the African continent such as the lion, the tapir and the giraffe.
