Pronghorn Information


The Pronghorn (Antilocapra americana), often mistakenly called an antelope due to its resemblance to true antelopes of Africa and Eurasia, is a unique North American mammal. It holds the title of the fastest land animal in the Western Hemisphere, capable of reaching speeds up to 55 miles per hour (88 km/h). Pronghorns are known for their remarkable speed and endurance, adaptations that have enabled them to evade predators on the open plains for millennia.
