  • Oryx:
    A genus of gazelle or antelope in the Bovidae family that lives in Africa, especially in the savannah, as well as in the Arabian Peninsula, where they had disappeared before being reintroduced. Oryx are typically recognised by their long, thin, straight horns pointing backwards, their relatively short mane, their hump on the shoulder and their large hooves. Their coat is fine, white with black, grey and/or brown markings. Both sexes have horns. They have a height at the withers of 81 to 120 cm and a body mass of 65 to 200 kg. Their horns measure between 38 and 127 cm.
    Its name is often confused with the Okapi for reasons of graphic appearance and head colour. The Okapi is the only species of the Okapia genus and one of the last five species of the Giraffidae family...
