Pretty pair of Pronghorn

These beautiful ladies along with a few others in the harem were hanging out with their man on the wide open prairie of Larimer County, Colorado last week. As always, the speedsters did not stand still for long and soon took off for a spot out of sight.

Sometimes mistakenly called antelope, their closest relatives are actually giraffes and okapi. It is believed Pronghorn developed their extraordinary speed when the now extinct American Cheetah was a threat. That speed and endurance continues to come in handy for escaping the threats of today – coyotes, wolves and of course man.
