Scimitar-Horned Oryx

An Oryx with long, smooth, curved-back horns, .Its coat is white with a red-brown chest and black markings on the forehead and down the length of the nose. The coat reflects the sun’s rays, while the black portions and the tip of the tongue provide protection against sunburn.[11][12] The white coat helps to reflect the heat of the desert.

Both sexes have horns, but those of the females are more slender.The horns are long, thin, and symmetrical; they curve backwards (a distinctive feature of this species)  The horns are so thin that they can break easily.
