Elmer, read these and weep.........$mart A$$...

Submitted by cur on 1/11/05 at 12:26 PM. ( )

While waiting for a mold to cure, I have some more dangerous free time on my hands. Figured I would spend it thinking up ways to trick clever Elmer....course the rest can play along too.

Elmer has already robbed me of one of my high dollar prints, a pair of mallards.....let's see if he can get the pair of wood ducks, too....or will someone else break up the set?

Gantry, Let's see how you handle these, $mart A$$!

1. I am a member of one of the Genera in the Family Bovidae. A forest dweller, I am most famous for being able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. One leap was measured at nearly ten meters, from a standing start over a bush nearly six feet tall. My mate and I are dichromic and males of my species often fight to the death and frequently lock horns during combat.

2. I am a diminutive antelope and unique in a number of ways. Very few antelope species live where I call home. How am I unique? Well first of all, I am the only member of my genus. Secondly I have a unique physical feature not shared by any other member of my Family.

3. I am the Jimmy Durante of antelope.<<<<<<GIMMIE!

4. My kind are one of the altitude record holders for antelopes......We get high on life. We have long horns and wooly fur.

5. Males of my species share a very common trait with whitetail deer. We are two species and neighbors of number four.

6. I am named for a sign of the Zodiac. Isle live where I care to. I have pre-orbitals like the duikers, a mane like the Sable and Rhone antelopes and a very bushy tail.

7. I am the Audrey Hepburn of our clan.<<<<<<<'Nuther GIMMIE.

8. We are another strange species of antelopes. We have a habit of spending time in caves, but we don't hang from the ceilings. We have beautiful fur but short horns. We blend in with our environment.....well most of the time.

9. Male and female of our species are decidedly dichromic. We have at least one trait in common with the white rhino. We have corkscrew horns and are very fond of a type of glove.......Who are we and, what are the gloves called?

10. My habitat and habits are very similar to the whitetail deer. In fact, most American hunters who see us are amazed at the similarities. Actually there is another species that makes the same impression on visiting hunters. Either species will be accepted as correct, but those of us from lands south of Impangani are the best choice.

OK, Mr. Elmer, I know it all, whiz kid, Gantry - and the rest of you head stuffers. Let's see how well you know your antelopes...

Remember that the Bovidae includes 49 Genera and 115 species......MOST of which ain't cows...or Palominos (Glen, notice how I snuck in that "P" word?)

Chousingha is correct.....what is so unusual about it?

Tibetian Antelope is also correct....
