Oryx

Submitted by Philippe on 12/11/2003. ( ) 80.200.215.203

Can anybody tell me how I should distinct the horns of the Oryx Gazella from the horns of Oryx leucoryx (the famous Arabian Oryx).

I found some horns in our basement and would like to determine to which of Oryx species they belong.

The Oryx leucoryx horns are not usually as long (for age) and they are not as ridged. They horns on a Oryx leucoryx will also be straighter not real sloped. The difference is slight most would not know the difference. Hope this helps.

God Bless
