Addax are known for their striking changeable coat and distinctive twisting horns for which they’re nicknamed the “Screw Horn Antelope.” The twisted horns that adorn both male and female addax are one of their most distinguishing characteristics, growing up to 31 inches on females and on trophy addax bulls, horns can grow up to 47 inches. Another easy way to recognize an addax is the telltale X over their nose, formed by brown or black patches of color. Their beard and red nostrils are classic features of addax, setting them apart from other antelope. During the summer, you’ll find addax are a white or sandy blonde, transforming in the winter into a gray-brown blend.
These adaptable antelopes originate from the Sahara desert and are well equipped to master harsh environments. This species is known to be alert, cautious, and incredibly agile, easily blending into their habitat. Addax are relatively rare in their original natural habitats due to overhunting and extreme habitat loss. As a result, addax breeding in captivity is highly encouraged. Many hunting ranches and private collections around the world regularly breed addax, enabling species to survive and their populations to thrive. Some of the largest populations of addax exist in Texas, where self–regulation on addax hunting and addax conservation efforts ensure that healthy herds of these amazing antelope are carefully cultivated.
