The Soft Colors And Speed of Pronghorn

This beautiful animal is sometimes referred to as just Pronghorn or American Antelope or Pronghorn Antelope, my personal preference just to cover all the bases. In addition to its attractive colors, it is known for being able to run at high speeds, up to 55 mph in short sprints!

Photos of Pronghorn Antelope are a little bit of a challenge to capture. They can be found mostly in the plains of the northwest in states such as Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas. They run when approached, but in some places like Yellowstone National Park, they are a little more habituated to humans and can be easier to photograph.

History, Habitat and Facts About North American Pronghorn Antelope

It is characterized by its long, black horns and a white underbelly with a brown or reddish back. The North American Pronghorn Antelope lives in the remote regions of the Rocky Mountains, spanning from Montana to Wyoming and as far as Oregon. They thrive in semi-arid habitats such as pine forests, foothills, and grasslands. Their movements are based on seasonal changes – they migrate during the summer to graze on fresh plants and escape hot weather while wintering where there is more snow for them to dig through for food.

Diet and Physical Characteristics

The North American Pronghorn Antelope is a grazer, meaning it feeds on grass. They are particularly fond of the new shoots that grow each spring.

Threats to the Species

The North American Pronghorn Antelope is one of the most endangered species in North America. It is now found mainly in Montana, Wyoming, and Oregon. However, their numbers have declined rapidly since the 1800s with some estimates saying that there are less than 40,000 left! The primary threat to this animal is habitat loss.

As humans continue to move into the wilder parts of Montana, Wyoming, and Oregon, they are increasingly destroying habitat for these animals which are forced to find new areas to live. Other factors affecting this species include hunting and competition from other herbivores. Despite being hunted for its meat and horns by humans, the main threat of hunting comes from other predators who compete with it for food.
