Pronghorn have true horns made of the same stuff your finger nails are made of and do not fall off completley like antlers but continue to grow.


Thank you all. Up close the horns show the damage done with scares from fighting. And yeah his set of horns are narly. Hopefully they will do a great job at the Taxi on him.
