Antelope are members of a number of even-toed ungulate species indigenous to various regions in Africa and Eurasia. They are included within the family Bovidae, encompassing those Old World species that are not cattle, sheep, buffalo, bison, or goats. Antelope, however, are generally more deer-like than other bovids. A group of antelope is called a herd.
Often known in North America as the American antelope, prong buck, pronghorn antelope, prairie antelope, or simply antelope, these animals closely resemble the true antelope of the Old World and fill a similar ecological niche due to parallel evolution.
Speed goats like these are common in Wyoming and of course, Colorful Colorado!
