PRONGHORN
Antilocapra americana

The pronghorn was formerly found over much of Texas, but now is found in limited areas in the Trans-Pecos and the panhandle regions.

The pronghorn are a not uncommon animal in some areas. They are frequently seen browsing in the high plains grasslands around Alpine and Marfa. They seem to browse more in the two or three hours after sunrise and preceeding dark.

This male is noticeable as such because of his larger horns and larger size.


This is a small group, consisting of a two males and two females. I have seen as many as 20 pronghorns in the same area. They were photographed north of Marfa in Presidio County.
