What does the Pronghorn look like?
Pronghorn have a stocky build and long legs. They have short black horns and a cinnamon-colored body, with a white rump, belly, and facial markings. Both males and females shed their horns each fall. Males are larger and have a black stripe on the lower jaw.
Pronghorn are North America's only native antelope. A group is called a band or a herd. Pronghorn are extremely fast. They can reach speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour, making them the second fastest animal on the planet behind the Cheetah. However, it should be noted Pronghorn can sustain high speeds for a great distance, making them capable of covering vast amounts of territory.
