An antelope of the desert and sub-desert, it stands 1.2m high at the shoulder and weighs up to 200kg. Its white coat reflects sunlight, keeping the Oryx cool, and the dark stripe through the eye protects it from glare. Wiped out by motorised hunters armed with rifles, it is probably extinct in the wild. The captive population of about 1500 is managed carefully. These are the only ones left in the world!
