Thanks! They mostly stand still, so those shots are easy. The one moving shot here involved a very cooperative pronghorn moving left to right at a constant distance (and focus).
I've heard their two closest relatives DNA wise are giraffe and okapi. I saw them all the time when I lived in Laramie, WY. Have also seen them in eastern Oregon and central California.
The DNA info could be correct -- genetics are shaking up a lot of taxonomies these days, and giraffes and okapis were already on the list of "suspects" for pronghorn relatives.
Or we can just appreciate them for their uniqueness. :)
...the American continent. I've seen these awesome animals in Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming and Utah.I must have seen 30 of these animals last saturday as I traveled from Lehi Utah to out in the western Utah desert along the Pony Express road. Here's a nice link to some additional information
