Robert must be a Texan...this is a Prong Horn Antelope.
Thanks for putting me right Todyoung on what the proper name for this antelope is. Just an ignorant Englishman who doesn't know his arse from his elbow in the animal kingdom. Rob
It's usually written pronghorn antelope (one word).
The first thing to know about them are that they are not antelope (they are in their own category more closely related to goats, but they are NOT goats). The second is that they do not have horns. The "horns" are a unique type of antler that only sheds it's outer shell, instead of loosing the whole antler like deer do.
Great shot, BTW. This individual is a near perfect specimen.
