Truly looking like the "Prince of the dunes". Very accurate with the sweeping horns as well. Not an animal I would take on when it is in a fowl mood, wounded or cornered.

According to "Die veltwachters vertel" they manage to use their horns so accurately that stones thrown at them will be thrown back at you.
Lions attack them from the back, pushing down with the hind legs to break the back, and will not approach them from the front.

Interesting reading, esp about the brain cooling system, thanks Jannie!

@Bush Baptist, that's pretty unusual! Was it a male? I'd imagine it would be a huge disadvantage from a mating point of view if it were.

@Mark, your aunt takes nice photo's!

Ja, I was only about 10 years old then. But it was nice to believe up to now that I did see one. :cry:
