Antelope Area 88

Pronghorn Antelope

  • The Pronghorn is the only species in it’s family.
  • The Pronghorn Antelope is the fastest land mammal in the world, with sprinting capabilities as fast as 60 mph and sustained speeds of 30 mph for miles! Although the African Cheetah is often credited with being the fastest, it is only a sprinter with endurance of a few hundred yards. No other land mammal can keep up with the Pronghorn Antelope over a long distance.
  • The Pronghorn doe (female) can run approximately 10 mph faster than a buck (male).
  • Due to a large windpipe, Antelope can move about 4-1/2 times more air than that of a human.
  • Millions of Pronghorn Antelope once roamed our prairies. By 1908, the Antelope was close to extinction with less than 20,000 remaining. This was caused by many things including market hunting and also the policy of the military to deprive the Native American Indians of one of their prime food sources.
  • Adult Pronghorn does weigh 75 to 100 lbs and usually become sexually active at an age of 16-17 months.
  • Pronghorn bucks  weigh 100 to 130 lbs. and do not begin breeding until they are approximately 3 years old.
  • Pronghorn’s eyes are larger than an elephants and their keen vision is said to rival a pair of 8X binoculars.
  • The eyes of an Antelope are nothing short of exceptional. They can pick up movement as far as three miles away. The eyes are located far back on the head so they can keep watch even while the head is down during feeding. Since the prairie offers little cover in which to hide, it needs to be able to outrun any predators that manage to sneak within striking range.
  • The first birth for a doe usually produces a single fawn but in later years, does will usually bear twins.
  • The baby Pronghorns are called kids.
  • Pronghorn Antelope will flare out the white hairs on their rumps when alarmed, serving as warning to the other members of the herd.
  • According to the Nebraska Game and Fish Commission only about 40 percent of the fawns born in June live until mid-July.
  • Pronghorn have horns and not antlers. Pronghorn are the only mammal with branching (pronged) horns and the only mammal to shed their horns.
  • The horn sheath of the antelope is shed annually. It is neither solely an antler nor horn, but part both.
  • About 40 percent of the females have horns, but they don’t get any longer than their ears and never fork.
  • Coyotes are the most important predators of young Pronghorns.
  • Antelope are not jumpers. When it encounters a fence an antelope will usually crawl under it! They seldom jump over one.
  • Coyotes are the most important predators of young Pronghorns.
  • Wyoming is considered the capital of the Pronghorn Antelope and where Pronghorn out number the human population.
