Addax antelope hails from the Sahara Desert region originally. From WWII
to modern times this antelope's numbers have suffered from the encroachment
of civilization and motorized hunting. The Addax is now either endangered
or totally missing in its entire native habitat. It is estimated that
no more than 250 animals exist in the wild.
Addax is a large bodied antelope with white to sandy coloration. Their
horns make a spiral that slants back and upward. They stand around forty
to fifty inches high at the shoulders. They have a prominent tuft of brown
hair on their forehead and a white chevron going across their nose.
animals, although endangered throughout their native habitat, have adapted
well to the Texas landscape and now are thriving in huntable numbers in
