Pronghorn Buck

No. 284729

by Safari Ltd

Native to western and central North America, the pronghorn is the only surviving member of the family Antilocapridae. They’re often thought to be antelopes due to the similarities in their appearances. However, pronghorns are just as closely related to giraffes as they are to antelopes!

  • Scientific Name: Antilocapra americana
  • Characteristics: Part of what makes pronghorns similar to giraffes is the fact that their horns are covered in a layer of skin. Like all Safari figurines, this pronghorn buck model is fantastic as a teaching aid, piece of décor, toy for play, or even as a gift, and has been accurately hand painted to appeal to all nature lovers.
  • Size and Color: Pronghorns are predominantly tan and brown, but have distinct patches of white fur along their sides, breasts, bellies, and throats. Standing 4 inches tall and 3.75 inches wide, this figurine is a touch shorter and wider than a soda can.
  • The Pronghorn Buck is part of the Wild Safari® North American Wildlife collection
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free
  • History:

    At one point in time, pronghorns were severely threatened and many subspecies were classified as endangered due to over hunting. While they still face threats such as habitat fragmentation, many laws and forms of protection have been put in place to preserve their numbers. Because of this, pronghorns have rebounded strongly and are now classified as least concern. While a few specific subspecies are still endangered, pronghorns on the whole are so plentiful that they actually outnumber humans in states like Wyoming.
