A remarkable antelope species that is native to the Arabian Peninsula. They are well-known for their striking white coat and long, pointed horns that can grow up to 80 cm (31 in) in length. These animals are well-adapted to the harsh desert environment, where they can survive for long periods without water by extracting moisture from their food. They are also incredibly agile and can run at speeds of up to 60 km/h (37 mph).
Unfortunately, the Arabian Oryx was hunted to near extinction in the early 20th century. However, thanks to successful conservation efforts, the species has made a remarkable recovery, and there are now over 1,000 individuals in the wild.
