Characteristics of the males are the beautiful, symmetrical spiral horns with a maximum length in axcess of 1.75 metres.
The horns have a well-developed ridge following the curvature of the spiral. This graceful spiral has a disadvantage for the animal in certain circumstances and it is tragic to find two dead males inextricably caught together by interlocked horns after a battle.
