Here are images of the two similar stamps depicting a gazelle, printed by photogravure, and issued for use in Ifni on June 1, 1964 to benefit children's welfare funds, Scott Nos. 119 & 121. Note: Scott identifies this animal as a mountain gazelle, which is native to the Middle East, but I believe it is actually a Dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas), which is indigenous to the Morocco desert region (see photo).

This Canadian self-adhesive coil stamp depicts a baby mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus). Despite its common name, the mountain goat is not really a goat. Rather, it is an "ungulate of the order Actiodactyla and family Bovidae that includes antelopes, gazelles, and cattle" (wikipedia).

The African, or Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer) makes another appearance on this thread. This time, a pair of them are on a 2007 airmail postcard rate stamp of the Republic of South Africa.

From Wikipedia, "The adult buffalo's horns are its characteristic feature: they have fused bases, forming a continuous bone shield across the top of the head referred to as a 'boss'."
