The term antelope is used to refer to many species of even-toed ruminant indigenous to various regions in Africa and Eurasia.
Antelopes comprise a wastebasket taxon within the family Bovidae, encompassing all Old World ruminants that are not bovines, sheep, or goats.
The antelope has played an important role in human medicine and culture. In some African traditions, it is commonly associated with the wind.
The antelope's horns are composed of keratin. This is the same substance found in nails, hair, claws, and hooves.
However, as opposed to deer, which the antelope is often compared to, antelopes keep the same horns for their entire lives instead of shedding them every year.
The structure and shape of antelope horns vary widely. Some horns form spirals, others are curved, and yet others have ridges.
Experts can often distinguish antelope species based merely on the appearance of their horns.
