Antelopes are generally characterized by a light, elegant figure, graceful limbs, small cloven hoofs, a short tail, and large and unbranched horns, which may be spiral-shaped. There are over 80 species of antelope, ranging in size from the royal antelope, which weighs about 8 pounds, to the giant eland, which weighs up to a ton. Antelope species do not form a taxonomic group but are spread throughout the subfamilies of the Bovidae family (bovids); many are more closely related to cattle or goats than to each other.
There are over 30 different antelope species to find in Africa, plus many many more subspecies.
The pronghorn of North America is often called an antelope. Although it is very antelope-like, it is not a true antelope since it is not a member of the Bovidae family. For the purpose of organization, we will include the pronghorn on this page.
