Fleet-footed pronghorns are among the speediest animals in North America. They can run at more than 53 miles (86 kilometers) an hour, leaving pursuing coyotes and bobcats in the dust. Pronghorns are also great distance runners that can travel for miles at half that speed.

Thanks, Emily! I wish we had seen more...Pawnee here we come!!! ;-)
Nice shots Christy! Mine really didn't come out at all. Blurry and dark! Man, this guy was handsome though!
Thanks, Ashley! We actually didn't expect to see any, but we were happily surprised!! We saw a few herds, but they were too far away for decent pics...this lone male was just hanging out by the road!
I love pronghorn, but they barely get into Texas so I've only seen a handful. Beautiful pictures!
