Additional Information

The pronghorn is called an antelope by just about everybody today.  In fact, the pronghorn is not an antelope, nor is it closely related to any other living animal.

The pronghorn is the only animal in the world with horns (not antlers) that branch, and the only horned animal that sheds them every year as though they were antlers.  Both sexes can have horns, but the male has much larger horns, and the female horn is seldom branched or pronged.

The Pronghorn is the fastest land animal in North America. It is our only mammal that has only two toes on each foot (no dewclaws), and it has hollow or cellular hair that insulates the body from heat or cold. The pronghorn can go for long periods without drinking water. Apparently it can produce metabolic water to conserve body water.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife (1992) book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas and the size is approximately 7.5 x 9.5 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.

This is a part of the Texas Wildlife Art Prints Collection.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
