Males are considerably larger than females. Both sexes have horns, which are ridged on the upper surface. In males, they are considerably larger than in females, growing upwards, then turning sideways and curving backwards, and reaching a length of 80 cm. In females, the horns are much shorter and straighter, growing only up to 20 cm long.
