The Addax nasomaculatus
was formerly present throughout the Sahara
. A grazing antelope
and an even-toed ungulate
, it tends to live far from water
. It has a long tail with a black tip, and a coat that is greyish white with a white belly
. It has long twisted horns
which appear on both sexes and can be as long as 43 inches. It graze
s in herds
of up to 300, chews a cud and can survive without water for days at a time.
Really, I just like this one because I get to use the word ungulate in a sentence.
