Where does the Pronghorn live?

The pronghorn is a mammal that is native to North America.

It is sometimes called the American antelope, but it is not closely related to the antelopes of Africa and Asia.

The pronghorn has distinctive horns that are branched and shed annually.

It is also the fastest land animal in the Western Hemisphere, capable of running up to 89 km/h (55 mph).

The pronghorn lives in open habitats such as grasslands, deserts, shrublands, and basins.

It ranges from southern Canada to northern Mexico, with the highest numbers in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho.

The pronghorn migrates seasonally between feeding grounds, traveling up to 260 km (160 mi) each way.

It is one of the few large mammals that still follows its ancient migration routes in North America.

The pronghorn is an herbivore that eats grasses, forbs, sagebrush, and other plants.

It gets most of its water from the vegetation it consumes.

It has a complex digestive system that allows it to break down the tough plant material.

The pronghorn is a social animal that forms herds of varying sizes and compositions.

The dominant males establish territories and mate with multiple females during the breeding season.

The females give birth to one or two fawns after a gestation period of about eight months.

The pronghorn faces threats from habitat loss, human-wildlife conflicts, and overhunting.

Two subspecies of pronghorn, the Peninsular and the Sonoran, are endangered and have very small populations.

Conservation efforts are underway to protect the pronghorn and its habitat, as well as to restore its historic migration corridors.

The pronghorn is a remarkable animal that has adapted to the harsh conditions of its environment.

It is an important part of the ecosystem and the culture of North America.

It is also a symbol of the American Society of Mammalogists.

The pronghorn is a hoofed mammal that lives in North America.

It is not a true antelope, but it has some similarities with them.

It has a reddish brown and white coat, with a short dark brown mane and a large white patch of hair on its rump.

The most distinctive feature of the pronghorn is its horns, which are branched and shed every year.

The horns of the male are longer and have two prongs, while the horns of the female are shorter and have one prong.

The pronghorn is the fastest land animal in the Western Hemisphere, and can run up to 88.5 km/h (55 mph).

It has very good eyesight and can spot predators from far away.

The pronghorn lives in open plains and semideserts, where it feeds on grasses, shrubs, and cacti.

It is the only surviving member of the family Antilocapridae, which once had many other species.
