The scimitar-horned oryx was listed as endangered seven years ago, but a special exemption from the federal Endangered Species Act allowed breeders of the rare African antelope to nonetheless sell and hunt the animals -- at $5,500 a head. As a result, her

Scimitar-horned Oryx

The scimitar-horned oryx, so named for its magnificent curved horns, is now thought to be Extinct in the Wild, hunted to the brink of extinction for its meat and exceptionally robust hide. The stocky body is a pale colour, with brown markings on the face and a reddish-brown neck and chest area. The large, spread hooves allow these antelope to walk on the sand of their dry habitat.

THE UNICORN MYTH

It has been suggested that the myth of the one-horned unicorn may originate from sightings of injured scimitar oryx; Aristotle and Pliny the Elder held that the oryx was the unicorn's "prototype". From certain angles, the oryx may be mistaken for having one horn instead of two, and given that its horns are made from hollow bone which cannot be regrown, if an oryx were to lose one of its horns, it would, for the rest of its life, have only one horn.

HABITAT and DISTRIBUTION

The Scimitar Oryx inhabits grassy steppes, semi-deserts (mostly in the Great Steppe)and deserts in a narrow strip of central north Africa (Niger & Chad). It is considered extinct in the wild, however. Now it is taken regionally extinct in Algeria, Burkina Faso, Chad, Egypt, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sudan, Tunisia and western Sahara Desert.

 

CONSERVATION and STATUS

Scimitar Oryx were hunted for their horns, almost to extinction. Originally it began to decline as a result of major climatic changes that caused the Sahara Desert region to become dry. The northern population was mostly lost prior to the 20th century. The decline of the southern population accelerated as Europeans began to settle the area and hunting for meat, hides and horn-trophies increased. It is thought that World War II and the Civil War in Chad during the 1980s impacted heavily on the species through an increase in hunting for food.

Where once they occupied the whole Sahara Desert, they are now considered to be extinct in the wild, with no confirmed sightings in the wild for over 15 years. Although there have been unconfirmed sightings in Chad and Niger, these reports remain unsubstantiated, despite extensive surveys that were carried out throughout Chad and Niger in 2001-2004 in an effort to detect Sahelo-Sahara Desert antelopes.

A global captive breeding programme was initiated in the 1960s. In 1996, there were at least 1,250 captive animals held in zoos and parks around the world with a further 2,145 on ranches in Texas. In 2005, at least 1,550 captives were managed as part of breeding programmes and it is believed that more than 4,000 are held in private collections in the United Arab Emirates. As part of the reintroduction plans, there are fenced in herds in three reserves in Tunisia, one reserve in Morocco and two reserves in Senegal.

A female calf was born in the National Zoo center in Front Royal, Virginia on April 16, 2010, increasing the Smithsonian's herd to 17.
