Hunting Trophy Addax

The Addax sports a pair of long, twisted horns. These will reach a length of 47 inches in mature adults, and both males and females have similar horns. The horns curve about halfway down their length and twist throughout. The long, twisted horns of the Addax make a splendid trophy, one that brings an exotic appeal to any room.

An Addax will often stay low and sleep all day long, even going so far as to dig a shallow hole for shelter. They are a nocturnal species that thrives in the cooler night air. They have terrific night vision, great sensitivity to movement, an excellent sense of smell and very good hearing. As such, getting close to an Addax can be hard.

Male and female animals do not show any difference in horn size and development. This means that females are not as commonly dominated as with some other species, as they can fend off an attack just as well as the males.

Physical Characteristics

The Addax is a strong animal measuring about 3 feet at the shoulder and weighing in between 130 to 230 pounds. The hoofed feet have a pronounced dewclaw, which is a huge advantage in sandy climates with soft footing.

The coat coloring is typically based on white, though patches of brown fur do show up on the neck, the head and the chest. This is the summer coat; the winter coat is a darker brown. In the winter, an Addaxs white nose and red nostrils will stand out, and they can be unidentified all year around by the brown goatee;the color of this beard will vary a bit from one animal to the next.

Behavior/Social Characteristics

The Addax does prefer to live in a herd, though small herds are the norm. The average comes in right around 20 animals per herd. The largest and oldest Addax tend to run the herds because they have experience searching for grazing areas which is extremely important in arid climates. The herds with the most experienced leader will thrive.

Native Habitat and Countries

The Addax lives in harsh climates, and it is native to the Sahara desert; as such, it wasnt discovered by man until 1816. In years gone by, the Addax flourished in its native countries, which included North Africa, Mauritania, Chad and Niger. Today, it lives largely in Morocco and Tunisia, and it is actually extinct in Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, Libya, and in the Western Sahara.

As its origins suggest, it does very well in arid climates and deserts, which makes it easy for it to live in wide open spaces in Texas. The Addax seeks out trees, grasses and bushes to eat, taking what is available. The thin grasses of these arid climates do not provide abundant food sources, but the Addax can graze comfortably over time and survive.
