Creature Feature #5 - Addax

The screwhorn antelope, or Addax as it is more widely known, is found in the arid Sahara desert. In summer it is white with the brown head markings, but in winter it puts on a brown coat - as you can see pictured here. Living in such an arid landscape, it can go for long periods of time without drinking. It eats grass, leaves and herbaceous shrubs. Males are significantly larger than females, and have longer horns.

This is an Art Card - 2.5 x 3.5 inches and can be traded for similar or purchased for NZ$10. Message me for details.
