  1. pronghorn antelope

    A pronghorn antelope is a species of artiodactyl mammal indigenous to North America, more specifically the western half of the continent. It is known for its unique horns with a pronged structure, which it sheds and regrows every year, and for being one of the fastest land animals. Known scientifically as Antilocapra americana, it is the only surviving member of the family Antilocapridae. Despite the name, it's not a true antelope, which are only found in Africa and Asia.
