Friends, this is a male pronghorn from the badlands. They get their name from the horn grown by males that is forked with a hook-like branch. They do not grow antlers like the deer and elk, but grow a horn that is partially shed each year. They can run 60 MPH and rely on their speed and agility to survive out on the open grasslands. til Tomorrow MJ
