|Native to Northern
Africa, the Scimitar Horned Oryx is now endangered (extinct in the
wild) and is now captive bred in high fenced game ranches.
In the wild, the Scimitar Horned Oryx is
(was) nomadic and followed erratic rainfall to obtain green forage.
Prefer open expanses and sandy soil.
Have done well in United States game
ranches, especially in drier climates with lower parasite loads.
