The pronghorn (Antiocapra Americana) the last surviving species of its family, is only found in Western North America. Both males and females have horns with a bony core surrounded by horny sheath. Males have slightly more ornate horns. These horns, which are shed annually are different from the bony antlers of deer, caribou and moose, and the non-shedding horns of goats, sheep, cattle, bison and musk ox. Pronghorn browse in groups, and sometimes in large herds. They are wary of predators. Farms, roads and fences have partionted and replaced original habitat.
