Common Beisa Oryx


The Common Beisa Oryx (Oryx beisa) enjoy feeding on a variety of grass species. They feed during the day when the plants hold the most water. During the dry season, they feed on poisonous Adenium plants.
This very beautiful antelope is quite a sight with its grey coat and black and white stripes. But, its best feature is its thin and straight ringed horns that are found on both sexes. The horns measure an impressive 75-80 cm on an already decently sized body making it a potent combination.
