Artist's Description

The 4th of July weekend we went to Roswell, NM for the UFO/Alien Festival that in it’s self being somewhat of an experience. And, on Sunday we headed west toward I25 to go north home and a ways west on Lincoln, NM is the northeast corner of White Sands Missile Range, NM. Now this area, if you look on a map, covers over a million square acres of land and is a protected area as far as hunting goes. So we are driving along and this is what we saw along the highway!! This is what Wikipedia has to say about this majestic creature:

The ‘’’[[Arabian Oryx]]‘’’ (‘’Oryx leucoryx’’), the smallest species, became extinct in the wild in 1972 from the [[Arabian Peninsula]]. It was reintroduced in 1982 in [[Oman]] but poaching has had negative effects. Further populations have been reintroduced in [[Qatar]], [[Bahrain]], [[Israel]] and [[Saudi Arabia]], with a total population in the wild of about 886 in 2003[http://www.animalinfo.org/species/artiperi/oryx...]. About 600 more are in captivity.

The ‘’’[[Scimitar Oryx]]‘’’, also called ’’’Scimitar-horned Oryx’’’ (‘’Oryx dammah’’) of [[North Africa]] is now possibly extinct in the wild. However, there are unconfirmed reports of surviving populations in central [[Niger]] and [[Chad]], and a population currently inhabiting a fenced nature reserve in [[Tunisia]] is being expanded for reintroduction to the wild in that country[http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/01/02/ameri...].

The ‘’’[[East African Oryx]]‘’’ inhabits eastern Africa, and the closely-related ‘’’[[Gemsbok]]‘’’ inhabits all of eastern and southern Africa. Both are considered threatened species. Between 1969 and 1977, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish released 93 Gemsbok into the [[White Sands Missile Range]] in [[New Mexico]] and that population is now estimated at about 1,700 animals[http://www.wsmr.army.mil/pao/whatsUp/wu32.htm]. The classification of these two animals varies between experts. One system has the ’’’Gemsbok’’’ as one species (‘’Oryx gazella’‘), and the ’’‘East African Oryx’‘’ as another (’‘Oryx beisa’‘) with two subspecies of its own, the ’’‘East African Oryx’‘’ “proper” (’‘Oryx beisa beisa’‘) and the ’’‘Fringe-eared oryx’‘’ (’‘Oryx beisa calliotis’‘). The other system has one ’’Oryx gazella’’ species, with three subspecies: ‘’Oryx gazella gazella’‘, ’’Oryx gazella beisa’’, and ‘’Oryx gazella calliotis’’.
