Pronghorn (Antilocapra americana)

Here are some images of several Pronghorns I took recently on a trip through Wyoming and Montana. We saw a lot of them, though most were to far off to get any good shots. Until I started writing this post, I was under the impression that Pronghorns were antelope; however, researching them a bit has revealed that they are not really Antelope but an artiodactyl mammal often known colloquially in North America as the prong buck, pronghorn antelope, or simply antelope, as it closely resembles the true antelopes of the Old World.  They live predominately in grasslands but also bush-land and deserts. This was a mixed herd but mostly males.
