Both male and female common eland possess horns that rise with a slight twist, back from the head to sharp points. The horns of the male are more robust and bear more distinct ridges than those of the female. The massive adult males can also be recognized by the large fold of loose skin that hangs below the throat (the dewlap), and the patch of long, coarse, dark hair on the forehead. These features become respectively larger and bushier with age. The common eland has a fairly small and pointed mouth and muzzle, small, narrow ears, and a long tail with a tuft of black hair at the tip. A distinct clicking sound can be heard as the common eland roams around its habitat; this unusual and distinctive feature is believed to be the result of two halves of the hoof knocking together when the foot is raised, or by the movement of bones in the leg.

Elk can be distinguished by their large size, brown or tan bodies, yellowish-brown tail, and rump patch. They have thick necks and slender legs and can stand as tall as 5 feet at the shoulder. Their long legs enable them to run as fast as 35 miles per hour. Males weigh from 600 to 1,100 pounds and have six-tined antlers that can grow up to 5 feet long. Antlers begin growing in early spring and fall off in winter. The females are smaller, about 400 to 500 pounds, and lack antlers. Mating season is in September and October. The location of the Elks’ eyes on their head allows them to see almost directly behind them. However, they have little depth perception, only in a small area in front of their nose. In addition to eating leaves and bark from trees, elk use seedlings to mark their territory. Males strip off bark with their antlers, and females pull off bark with their teeth. Then both males and females rub the seedlings with chins and muzzles to cover the plants with their scent. Elk can live in many different environments.

The Gemsbok is a very striking animal with dramatic features and long spear like horns. It has a thick horse-like neck with a short mane that runs from the head to the shoulders and a compact, muscular body. The distinctive black and white face markings are said to have contributed to their name Gemsbok, given to them by the Boers, which means chamois. There is white around the nose and mouth, black on top of the muzzle, which joins a black band that runs from in front of the ear through the eyes and to the middle of the lower jaw. The ears end in a black tip, and there is a narrow black stripe down the spine, a black patch on top of the rump, and a black tail. There is also a black band that separates their gray-fawn colored flanks and the white under parts. All four legs are black on their top half, with white below the knees and black patches on the shins. Males and females are difficult to tell apart. Their horns are long and extend straight back from the head and diverge rather widely at the tips. Female horns tend to be more slender and slightly longer than males and are sometimes curved and more parallel. The tips are pointed and sharp, and native Africans used the tips for spear points. The horns are ringed but are smooth near the tips. The horns of the calves grow extremely fast, and when they emerge from concealment after birth, their horns are very evident. This has lead to the myth that a Gemsbok is born with horns.

  • 
Maximum Age: 20 years
  • Antlers/Horns: Males only

The Pere David’s Deer, or Milou, as a species is totally extinct in the Chinese wild. A French missionary named Father Armand David first discovered these deer in the Chinese Emperor's hunting park south of Peking in 1865. He sent specimens to Europe the following year, and a breeding herd was later set up by the Duke of Bedford at Woburn Abbey. The entire Chinese herd was destroyed during the revolution in 1900, but the herd in England was successful and increased in size. Eventually their descendants found their way into parks and zoos. Some of the offspring found themselves on ranches in this country. This seeding of animals has grown into herds large enough to sustain a huntable population. The Pere David has a longish tail and stands about 45 inches at the shoulder. Their color is a reddish gray with a white underside and a white ring around the eyes. The antler configuration is different in the Pere David than in most deer. Their antlers have forked brow tines and long slender back horns sometimes with many points off them. They are the only deer to grow antler tines backwards. Many say these animals have the body of a donkey, head of a horse, hooves of a cow, neck of a camel, and antlers of a deer.

In a few populations, most or all females do not grow horns. The different subspecies vary slightly in overall appearance; color also varies with season and between males and females. The face is generally grayish with a white muzzle, nostrils and inside of the ears. The legs are long and slender with a vertical black line below the knees. Red Sheep have a white belly and a coat that varies in color from gray with a reddish tinge to brown and coffee colored. The adult rams tend to develop a substantial chest ruff of long, coarse hair in the throat region. In most of the Red Sheep subspecies the males also have a lighter colored saddle patch, which develops and increases in size as they get older and a black stripe, which begins midway along the nape of the neck and along the shoulders before continuing under the body, ending behind the back legs. Red sheep have large glands beneath the eye, which often exudes a sticky substance that mats the hair.

Pheasant are large, colorful, long-tailed birds with short, rounded, and curved wings. Males are generally larger than females and are much more colorful. The tails are long and pointed, and the female's are shorter than the male's. The male has a brilliant green head and white neck ring; the bodies of both sexes are a soft brown pattern with an iridescent russet. The call is a loud crowing followed by a resonant beating of the wings. When the pheasant is alarmed, it flies off with a loud cackle. There are nearly 50 species and even more subspecies of pheasant. Pheasants originated in Asia and in North America and have been widely introduced to many areas for sport hunting. All but one species of pheasant are still found in Asia. Most pheasants have long, strong legs with four-toed and clawed feet. The legs and bill are adapted to scratching in the ground for food. When a pheasant senses danger, it prefers to use its legs to flee, because although they are able to fly swiftly, they cannot sustain flight for very long. Male Pheasants often have spurs which are used in battles for dominance.

  • Antlers/Horns: Both male and female

The Sable is a rotund, barrel-chested antelope with a short neck and a long face. It resembles the larger Roan antelope, to which it is closely related. Among its distinctive features are its long horns which rise vertically, then sweep backwards in a pronounced curve. They are found in both sexes, but the male's horns are slightly larger and heavier than the female's. Both males and females have manes on the neck, and when they arch their necks and stand with their head held high and tails outstretched, they resemble horses. This flexed-neck position makes sables appear larger than they really are. The males maintain this position even when they gallop, as the arched neck is an important manifestation of dominance.

Springbok

$6,000

  • Native to South Africa
  • Weight: 66-105 pounds
  • Gestation Period: 5-6 months
  • Number of young: One
  • 
Maximum Age: 7-9 years
  • Antlers/Horns: Both male and female as long as 19"

Springbok are reddish brown in color with a pale underside. On each of their flanks they have a dark brown stripe that separates their brown upper parts from their underside. Their head is white and they have a dark brown stripe that runs from each eye down to their upper lip. They have a pocket-like skin flap that runs from the middle of their back to their tail. When they are excited or frightened they can lift this flap, which makes the white hairs underneath stand up in a conspicuous crest that acts as a warning to other Springbok. Springbok are known to leap up to 13 feet in the air in an activity known as pronking. While in the air their body is curved, and their legs are stiff, close together and point downwards. Upon landing they immediately leap upwards again and during this period the crest on their back is raised. It is unknown why they pronk but it is possible they do it to indicate to predators that they have been spotted. When required Springbok can reach speeds up to 60 mph - they are among the top ten fastest land animals in the world.

Watusi

$5,500

  • Native to Asia
  • Weight: 1,200-1,600 pounds
  • Gestation Period: 9 months
  • Number of young: One
  • 
Maximum Age: 20 years
  • Antlers/Horns: Both male and female

Watusi cattle originated centuries ago in Africa and are known for their incredible horns not only because of the length but also for the thick circumference. The animals' large horns are honeycombed with blood vessels, and are used to thermo-regulate in hot temperatures. Blood moving through the horns is cooled by moving air, and then flows back into the body and lowers the animal's body temperature. Newborn calves weigh just 30-50 pounds and remain small for several months. During the day, the calves sleep together, with an "auntie" cow nearby for protection. At night, the herd-members sleep together, with the calves in the center of the group for protection. The horns of the adults serve as formidable weapons against any intruders.

White-bearded Wildebeest

$6,500

  • Native to Northern Tanzania and Kenya
  • Weight: 325 - 600 pounds
  • Gestation Period: 8.5 months
  • Number of young: One
  • 
Maximum Age: 20 years
  • Antlers/Horns: Both male and female

There is no other antelope like the wildebeest. It looks like it was assembled from spare parts - the forequarters could have come from an ox, the hindquarters from an antelope, and the mane and tail from a horse. The antics of the territorial bulls during breeding season have earned them the name "clowns of the savanna". The species that forms the large herds of the Serengetis-Mara ecosystem of Tanzania and Kenya is variously known as the brindled, blue- or white-bearded gnu. Scientists do, however, make a distinction and list the blue as a separate race restricted to southern Tanzania. The wildebeest described here is the white-bearded of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. The head of the wildebeest is large and box-like. Both males and females have curving horns, that are close together at the base, but curve outward, inward and slightly backward. The body looks disproportionate, as the front end is heavily built, the hindquarters slender and the legs spindly. The wildebeest is gray with darker vertical stripes that look almost black from a distance. This species has a dark mane and a long tail. Newborns are a yellowish-brown, but change to adult color at about 2 months.

  • Weight: 800-2,200 pounds
  • Gestation Period: 8 months
  • Number of young: One
  • 
Maximum Age: 20 years

The buffalo are the largest mammal on the North American continent. Its two subspecies are the Plains Bison (flat backs) and the Wood Bison (large humped backs). The bulls utter a rumbling roar during mating season and posses an unpredictable nature. Bison lose their shaggy, dark brown winter coat for a lightweight, light brown summer coat. Bison can reach over 6 feet tall and 10 feet long weighing over 2,000 pounds. The heads and forequarters are massive, and both male and female have short, curved horns used for defense and fighting for status among the herd. They have amazing mobility, speed, and agility and are able to sprint at speeds of 30 mph. Today, bison are noted for their hides and meat, which is lower in fat and cholesterol than beef.

The most abundant big game animal in North America, the whitetail deer is named for its signature tail and white underparts. According to scientists, there are actually 38 sub-species of whitetail deer. A favorite with hunters for the trophy racks, whitetail can be elusive, running up to 40 miles per hour and able to clear an 8 foot hurdle. Whitetail antler growth is usually complete by the end of August, and the speed at which their antlers grow makes them the fastest growing structures in the animal kingdom. A whitetail buck sheds his antlers every year, usually between late December and February. The members of the deer family are ruminants, having a four-compartmented stomach, which allows the deer to feed very rapidly. Not having a gall bladder allows them to eat vegetation that would kill domestic animals.

Zebra

$5,500

  • Native to Africa
  • Weight: 390-850 pounds
  • Gestation Period: 12 months
  • Number of young: One
  • 
Maximum Age: Up to 40 years

No animal has a more distinctive coat than the zebra. Each animal´s stripes are as unique as fingerprints. No two are exactly alike, although each of the three species (Grant's, Grev's, and Hartman's) has its own general pattern. Zebras have shiny coats that dissipate over 70 percent of incoming heat, and some scientists believe the stripes help the animals withstand intense solar radiation. The black and white stripes are a form of camouflage called disruptive coloration that breaks up the outline of the body. Although the pattern is visible during daytime, at dawn or in the evening when their predators are most active, zebras look indistinct and may confuse predators by distorting true distance.
