Pronghorn Antelope in Custer State Park, Custer, South Dakota.
Pronghorns have distinct white fur on their rumps, sides, breasts, bellies, and across their throats. Adult males are 4 feet, 3 inches to 4 feet, 11 inches long from nose to tail and stand 32 to 41 inches high at the shoulder. Females are the same height as males but weigh less.
The pronghorn is the fastest land mammal in the Western Hemisphere, being built for maximum predator evasion through running. The top speed is very hard to measure accurately and varies between individuals; it can run 35 mph for 4 mi, 42 mph for 1 mile and 55 mph for 0.5 miles. It is often cited as the second-fastest land animal, second only to the cheetah. However, pronghorns can sustain high speeds longer than cheetahs.
