Artist's Description

This image was taken at the Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge, Virginia, USA. There are 180 acres for many species of animals to roam free on. It’s a fantastic place for the animals and a great place for visitors to get a close up natural look at them. Taken with my Canon Powershot SX110 IS
Eland (Taurotragus oryx)
The Eland is the largest antelope in the world, weighing from 1000 to 2100 pounds and standing from 4 1/2 feet to 6 feet at the shoulder. It’s native range is Africa. It’s diet consists of leaves and grasses, and some fruit. Over the past 100 years, game hunting and loss of habitat has caused it’s numbers to dwindle, especially in Southern Africa. It is now found primarily in National Parks. The Eland looks much like an Ox. Both the males and the females have spiking horns that twist straight back from the face. The Oryx is the only antelope born with horns. At birth, the horns are visible as hair covered bumps. BEST VIEWED LARGE
