Mimosa Exotics - Scimitar-horned Oryx
 (Oryx dammah)

     The scimitar-horned oryx once ranged over much of Africa's semi-arid grassland and scrub on the northern and southern fringes of the Saharan Desert. This is the second most common antelope in captivity and Texas ranches carry the largest global population. (AZA Factsheet - and more info).

     The Mimosa Farm 'herd' consists of three animals (pictured) that arrived in June of 2001.  Initially shy and favoring the woodlands, they now tend to dominate the open grasslands and seem to enjoy chasing the Blackbuck.



Will will have no surplus animals this year.
