Addaxes are also known as white antelopes and inhabit the unforgiving land of the Sahara desert. Their light color helps them in deflecting the extreme heat of the sun. Moreover, they can change their body temperature daily, reducing the need for evaporative cooling, thus conserving water.
Addax is as close to extinction as possible and is classified as Critically endangered. The primary threat to its population and survival is unsustainable hunting practices for its horns, hide, and meat, along with habitat disruption. All of these issues need to be addressed immediately, or this magnificent animal might face a gruesome future, leading to extinction.
