"Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the antelope play." We were given a home at Wichita Mountains NWR where the buffalo roamed, and now we have a home where the antelope play.
The fastest mammal in North America at 40 miles per hour!!! Females usually produce twins and we were fortunate to get this photo even though it is not the best. This is the first time we have ever seen baby Pronghorn, much less twins!!!
Females have shorter horns lacking the prong. Some times they have no horns. When they become alarmed, the white rump patch is flared and erect.
Until next time...
