Interesting Scimitar Oryx Hunting Information

Sometimes called the scimitar-horned oryx, this majestic North African animal has a white coat with a reddish-brown chest. Its face is incredibly distinctive, sporting black marketings down the length of its snout, stretching from forehead to nose. Their coloring provides ideal camouflage for their native terrain. As the nickname implies, their horns sweep back in the shape of a scimitar and can grow as long as 42 inches on trophy scimitar males and as long as 24 inches on females. 

Scimitar oryx are incredibly adaptable, having originally inhabited the arid deserts of North Africa. This makes them ideally suited for the dry Texas desert terrain. Surviving without water for many weeks is their strength, as their bodies prevent water loss from urination as well as avoiding perspiration by controlling their body temperature. Their torsos have a distinctive hump on their shoulders, another adaptation designed to provide fat reserves for times when food is scarce. Despite their adaptability, we feed our herds well at Cotton Mesa, ensuring a large breeding population and a thriving population.
