Hey, everyone and, I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I am here with a fun new series about animals, with the most spectacular horns in the wild, it won't include animals with antlers though I may do one of them next. In at # 10 to kick things off is the Springbok, they aren't as big as some animals on this series, only getting about 34 inches in height and weighing close to 100 pounds, they do have a formidable set of horns though and, can run very fast 55 mph, they can also jump quite high about 7 feet in the air, it's thought they do this as an alarm signal predators are near. Some information verified at Wikipedia. In the photo you can see 2 Springboks doing battle. Photo is By Peter Thomas - Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=34465174
