Taken back in July, this was the first time I had gotten a decent picture of baby Pronghorn. There were actually three with their moms but the third set was out of the frame. As is typical for these creatures, they didn’t hang around long once they saw me but did check me out for a brief moment.
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.
