Pronghorn Portrait…Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA

Pronghorns are one of North America’s most interesting mammals. Not only do pronghorns have the longest land migration in the continental United States, they also are the fastest land animal in North America. Pronghorns can run at speeds close to 60 miles per hour. Although pronghorns are not as fast as cheetahs, they maintain a fast speed for a longer period of time than cheetahs. When a cheetah has run out of energy, the pronghorn is still going. They’re true marathon runners!

Habitat: Pronghorns like open plains, fields, grasslands, brush, deserts and basins. Between the summer and winter, pronghorns migrate between feeding grounds to survive the harsh winter.

Range: Pronghorns are only found in North America. Their natural range extended from southern Canada to northern Mexico. Today, pronghorns are mainly found in the United States in the Great Plains, Wyoming, Montana, northeast California, southeast Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.

I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.
