Where the deer and the antelope stay

Common Eland

Elands are the second largest species of antelope behind their relatives the giant elands.  Both have those spectacular spiral horns.

 

Pere David’s Deer

This is a semi-aquatic species that prefers marshlands and is native to the sub tropics of China.  It only survives now because some animals had been sent to captive programs in Europe.

 

Scimitar Horned Oryx

This species of oryx , also known as the Sahara oryx, was once widespread over north Africa.  It has been extinct in the wild for around two decades but in the past year breeding groups have been reintroduced to a reserve in Chad.  Here’s hoping they succeed.
