As I've needed to once again go into my Oryx archives I've discovered that this one has not appeared on EPZ in the past so here it is.
They were extinct in the wild by about the mid 60's although they obviously survived in captivity.
I remember being told that there's now about 1000 in the wild and another 7000 in captivity.
They continue to be classed as an endangered species.
Taken in a desert in the Middle East.
Impressive horns and good to hear that they are growing in numbers in the wild
What an interesting animal!! Depressing indeed to know though that it too is endangered. We humans are responsible for so much harm.
Saudia Arabia re-introduced this beautiful animal after a captive breeding programme...............they were almost extinct in the deserts of Arabia they are now protected............if anyone kills an Oryx they may very well lose their head.......a great deterrent I think............
What an experience Ken, rarity indeed !!
wow nice one great detail in the horns and they are big un's fine capture
"Do you see many of these wonderful creatures roaming around Swansea Ken? , if so I shall be over in a couple of hours"...
A stunning wildlife capture, both pose and composition working extremely well in this warming light...
Beautiful animal Ken, love the image.
Those are some long horns. Great shot.
Impressive horns , just don't get to close to them I say, or you might just the point . It's good to hear they are gaining in numbers.
I have been wondering what an ORYX is---- A super image of! Thank you!
Huge but very elegant horns
Great to see such a fine shot of these very rare animals Ken.
A really lovely capture
Lovely shot of this handsome beast, Ken. Really beautiful horns they have, huh? Er...actually 'antlers', probably.
Fabulous capture Ken.
The colours are mesmerising.. Beautifully captured
A stunning wildlife capture, interesting write up
A stunning capture.Such wonderful colours
The colors of the desert are fantastic. I guess he doesn't have a problem when his back itches...
I am envious...
