A tour of the photo archives takes us once again through the fringes of Antelopia, my ongoing project where I photograph every antelope I can find. Due to the fact that Northwest Indiana is not prime antelope habitat (not recently, anyway), this results in a lot of taxidermy “head shots”. I found these Antelopia denizens, among many others, at Cabela’s. I have tentatively identified them in my new antelope handbook, Bovids of the World: Antelopes, Gazelles, Cattle, Goats, Sheep and Relatives by Jose R. Castillo, which is apparently the cornerstone of any antelope-related library.
One of them is a giveaway: the familiar American Pronghorn. The others are (I think), a Black Wildebeest, an East African Eland, and an Angolan Gemsbok. Can you match the antelope with its (probable) identity?
